User Education

Who we are

The User Education Committee is a subcommittee of the New Jersey Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries and the College and University Section of the New Jersey Library Association. The function of the committee is to promote information literacy as an educational goal, and to support the development of, and pursuit of excellence in library user education programs. The committee produces professional development programs on teaching and learning in libraries, disseminates information about information literacy and user education, and serves as a forum for the discussion of issues relating to information literacy.

Open Letter Regarding the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education

Some of the members of the ACRL-NJ/NJLA CUS User Education Committee and the VALE NJ Shared Information Literacy Committees have collaborated on an Open Letter Regarding the Framework for Information
Literacy for Higher Education. It is available on a Google Doc at

This has been sent to the ACRL Task Force and will be forwarded to the ACRL board after the petition has had a chance to circulate among academic librarians.
