In 2016, the Tampere University of Technology (TUT) Library adopted the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to its information literacy education. ACRL encourages libraries to deploy the frames to best suit their own situation and needs and, accordingly, the TUT Library has adapted the frames to better suit the needs of its technical students and researchers. This paper will present the ways in which the TUT Library has adapted the Framework to teaching of information literacy, how partnership with teaching staff members was built through active collaboration, and the initial results of these changes as evaluated by both students and teaching staff.
