  • Develop a “shared” vision

Why is it important to achieve it?

…and Six Pictures say it all


How will we know if we have succeeded?

At the completion of the initiative, AASL envisions school library media programs that prepare learners to thrive in a complex information society, seek diverse perspectives, gather and use information ethically and use social tools responsibly and safely.

Download the standards from
  • Take a deep breath. The new standards were designed to build on and further develop the values and goals set out in the Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning, published in 1998
Start by reading the Common Beliefs statements on pages 2 and 3. These are the beliefs upon which the new standards were built.
  • Consider convening a book club or discussion group to explore the standards more deeply.
If your district already has school library media learning standards, correlate them with the Standards for the 21st Century Learner. Identify areas for professional development.
  • If your district does not yet have school library media learning standards, consider using these standards as a starting point.
Prioritize which areas of the standards you will address first if full implementation is not feasible at this point in time. For example, you might start by addressing the skills only.
  • Check in frequently at the AASL website

where strategies and tips will be provided, updated and refreshed regularly as the Implementation plan is rolled out.
