In 2017, Western Kentucky University completely revamped the mission statement for their Information Literacy program. I was involved as the Research Instruction Coordinator and chair of the task force. We had several important goals, including ensuring that our IL program met the needs of the institution and that it fit into other university initiatives. More universal, however, was the need to integrate the mission and goals for IL with the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the Information Literacy VALUE Rubrics from the American Association of Colleges & Universities. During this process, we learned valuable lessons that can be replicated by academic libraries of any size. Some of these principles have already been used at Missouri Valley College.
