Implementing the National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries in Rural Virginia (Volume 47, No. 5, pgs e1-7)

Standard: $3.99
Members: $0.00


Schools in Virginia’s Region 8 twelve rural school divisions often lack funds and resources for professional development. After the AASL National School Library Standards were released in November 2017, Longwood University’s graduate school librarianship program faculty successfully wrote a University grant to provide copies of the standards to the 60 PreK‐12 school libraries in the region. The grant also provided professional development, implementation strategies, and mentorship. In a September day-long workshop, the authors introduced the yearlong project and collected data on the librarians’ current level of standards knowledge and implementation.
