Leading with Your
National School Library Standards 

Collaborate, curate, explore the new AASL National School Library Standards (NSLS) with Marcia Mardis as your guide!

In November 2017, AASL released the National School Library Standards (NSLS) for learners, school librarians, and school libraries. Join together with school librarians from across Michigan to learn about the new standards. Explore the opportunities to use the NSLS to guide your leadership efforts in local initiatives such as open educational resource (OER) integration and ESSA levels of evidence for effectiveness. Inquire, include, collaborate, curate, explore and engage in this hands-on opportunity to build your professional competencies and learner support strategies.
