This 2022 study follows up on a 1999 study of visual literacy education in American Library Association-accredited library and information studies programs. Using the Association for College and Research Libraries’ Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, the article analyses those standards vis-à-vis current educational offerings in professional librarianship programs to discover if these program offerings are properly preparing a visually literate workforce.
