The adoption of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education by the Association of College & Research Libraries’ (ACRL) executive board in January 2016 motivated library instruction programs to deeply explore the Framework and carefully evaluate its impact on a local level. A coordinator of library instruction and the director of a Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) used Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) as a method to investigate designing learning outcomes for a library instruction program that incorporates the ACRL Framework. The authors trace the design process followed by Kimbel Library and the Center for Teaching Excellence to Advance Learning (CeTEAL) at Coastal Carolina University (CCU). They argue that a SoTL framework can be used by academic librarians as a model for contextualizing the ACRL Frames and designing local learning outcomes.
