Abstract: This roundtable will focus conversation on how the emerging draft information literacy standards (ACRL, 2014) impact libraries in virtual schooling environments. Participants will discuss K-12 and higher education students' development of information literacy as a series of threshold concepts and metaliteracies (Mackey & Jacobson, 2011, 2014; Townsend, Brunetti, & Hofer, 2011). Participants will also examine what the evolving information literacy standards mean for virtual schools, libraries, teachers and librarians.
