Reference & Research Book News
"This is a heavy-weight that deserves reading. Not only does it present strategies that allow for full use of the new AASL standards, it is a collection of many of the field's best thinkers talking about the need and use of these new standards and 21st century learning. . . . This is a good reference for why and how to use standards effectively. Not a cover-to-cover read, it is a compendium of ideas and thoughts useful to school libraries."
"This is an excellent starting point for examining AASL's standards and provides a solid basis for library-school and in-service offerings. Current school librarians will probably want to pick and choose chapters to read."
"The book is equally useful as a textbook or as a guide for those already in the school library."
