The Association of College and Research Libraries’ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education offers a broad outlook regarding the core concepts necessary for responsible, informed, and generative information use. Just as the Framework is adaptable for many disciplines and teaching strategies, it implicitly supports opportunities for librarians and other instructors to discuss the legal and social structures underlying information creation, use, and reuse. The idea of intellectual property shapes the information landscape to which learners are formally introduced within the Framework; therefore, the Framework presents a singular opportunity to discuss topics—no matter how basic—related to copyright and fair use. Just as advocates of critical library pedagogy and social justice praxis have identified opportunities and gaps in the Framework, copyright educators may need to teach both within and beyond the frames in order to connect learning to practice.
