2019 AASL National Conference

The Inquiring Librarian: Evidence-Based Practice in School Libraries

Nov 15, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Nov 15, 2019 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


One of our most valuable tools for improving our school libraries is our own line of inquiry! While it is important to look to others for innovation, we must also ask our own questions and gather data about our programs and services. This session will focus on collecting and reviewing data to make decisions based on evidence from your own school library. We’ll discuss different ways you can collect data and how to review the results to better serve your students, faculty, and communities.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will review and reflect on the basic tenets of evidence-based practice.
  • Participants will propose their own line of inquiry to examine, reflect, and improve on their school library, using evidence-based practice.


  • Jeffrey DiScala, Assistant Professor, Old Dominion University
