The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy posits six “big ideas” or frames, that an information literate individual understands. These frames are based on the educational theory of threshold concepts, and because of this theoretical basis the six frames are intentionally complex and wide ranging in scope. When the frames intersect with research practices within disciplines they take on different shadings and modulations, and are useful in different ways. When we apply the Framework from an art and design prospective, what might these ideas look like? This chapter explores the intersection of each of the six frames with art and design research.
