The new ACRL Framework for information literacy provides scope for addressing social justice, but stops short of explicitly addressing the topic. This presentation examines how instruction librarians can promote social justice using the Framework as a lens. It will identify ways for addressing social justice within each frame, offer practical ideas developing a social justice IL pedagogy, and make a case for expanding the framework to include a new frame focused on social justice.
