Understanding how both professions perceive IL should be a priority, with findings from Ivey’s (2003) study revealing that a shared understanding forms one of the key elements for successful collaboration in relation to IL initiatives. This research project endeavours to shed light on this area by employing survey methodology to investigate how Faculty and Librarians at two higher education institutions in Australia and Singapore perceive the concept of IL in relation to ACRL's Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (ACRL, 2015), including a comparative analysis. 63 Faculty and 22 Librarians from Bond University and Singapore Management University were asked a combination of open-ended and attitude-scale type questions on the framework’s definition of IL; the six threshold concepts; and on their views on the value and impact of IL programs at their respective institutions.
