Meet your new National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries! Join AASL Standards editorial board and implementation task force chairs Marcia A. Mardis and Mary Keeling on a guided tour of the standards development process as well as in-depth introductions to the National School Library Standards (NSLS) integrated content designed to support and enhance learners' experiences, school librarians' practice, and the alignment between school libraries and learning goals.
