Student Content Standards for School Libraries

Student Content Standards for School Libraries. Here is a set of Library/Information Literacy Standards from the Alaska Association of School Librarians (AkASL). They were developed in 1999 and 2000.

I had not noted this before. But as a whole, I think they look good. Who can argue with the mission statement? It reads, "The school library is a primary source for information and curriculum support. The school library program functions as the information center for the school by providing access to a full range of information resources, in both traditional and electronic format, and opportunities to acquire information literacy skills and integrated and interdisciplinary learning activities which support the curriculum. The mission of the school library program is to ensure that all students and staff become literate, life-long learners and effective and responsible users of ideas and information."
