The International Visual Literacy Association (IVLA) will be devoting an upcoming issue of the Journal of Visual Literacy to the ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. Please consider submitting a proposal! Deadline is March 20, 2015
The Journal of Visual Literacy (JVL) invites manuscripts for an analysis of the 2011 ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education The Association of College and Research Libraries is a division of the American Library Association. We recognize there are other visual literacy standards developed by different organizations in higher education. We seek manuscripts that explore empirical, theoretical, research, practical, or applied aspects of visual literacy for library and information science and services and visual literacy standards developed by other disciplines. With the proliferation of visual information, research has indicated that the need to incorporate visual literacy into the curriculum of higher education is one of the most pressing tasks. ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education recognizes this need and invites educators, scholars, researchers, information professionals, and students to engage visual literacy in higher education. Scholarly research contribution to the JVL enhances the implementation of visual literacy standards in the curriculum, research, and learning for a lifelong learning journey.
JVL reflects the eclectic nature of the membership of the International Visual Literacy Association (IVLA) and publishes articles on a wide variety of topics on visual literacy. JVL is a refereed, scholarly journal that provides an open forum in which researchers and practitioners can explore the evolving field of visual literacy.
