About Recommended Reads

Recommended Reads for Visual Literacy, a bibliography of articles, books, and archival materials, seeks to serve as a detailed web resource for visual literacy. This project seeks to empower the current research community and to encourage educators and scholars to explore the existing literature on visual literacy. The project focuses on three main areas: visual literacy, libraries, and the ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education; visual literacy across the disciplines; and archival materials about the formation of the International Visual Literacy Association. For more information about the archival materials, please see the Arizona State University’s website about the Benedict Visual Literacy Collection.
