Integration of the ACRL framework into the Information Literacy curriculum have been a focal point of many instructional librarians in the recent years with the attempts to reconstruct and reevaluate Information Literacy approaches and to deeper integrate it into the curriculum.

This poster will discuss an application of the knowledge practices of the ACRL framework through the visual concept mapping process as part of the search strategy assignments during Information Literacy sessions. Due to the versatility and adaptability of the concept map, it can be successfully applied in a variety of the educational contexts. This poster will demonstrate how visual concept mapping, being an authentic and meaningful learning tool, can be integrated into the search strategy assignment, allowing students to express their research topic more creatively, thus facilitating more productive searching techniques and iterative process of knowledge construction.

Using Agile core principles and values, this poster will show how concept mapping can become a valuable tool for transformation of the theological libraries by promoting students’ creative expression and facilitating their engagement in the classroom through a more relevant learning experience.
