AASL Standards Survey Open November 6–20, 2023
AASL invites all school library professionals and school library collaborators to participate in a set of community surveys to share insights and experience with the National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries. A school librarian’s roles reach across grade levels and content areas, schools and districts. How well the National School Library Standards and its supporting content is meeting the needs of school libraries and those who collaborate with school librarians is important to AASL.
