IFLA School Library Guidelines, 2nd edition (draft)

IFLA School Library Guidelines, 2nd edition (draft)

by IFLA School Libraries Standing Committee, Dianne Oberg and Barbara Schultz-Jones (Eds.)

“This is the new draft edition of the School Library Guidelines 2015 that has been submitted to the IFLA Professional Committee for approval.

These guidelines constitute the second edition of the IFLA ‘School Library Guidelines’. The first edition of the school library guidelines was developed in 2002 by the School Libraries Section, then called the School Libraries and Resource Centers Section. These guidelines have been developed to assist school library professionals and educational decision-makers in their efforts to ensure that all students and teachers have access to effective school library programs and services, delivered by qualified school library personnel.

The drafting of these revised guidelines involved discussion, debate and consultation with many people from many countries at workshops during IFLA conferences and mid-year meetings and through ongoing writing and review in person and online. The editors are indebted to the contributions of members of the Standing Committee of the IFLA Section of School Libraries and the executive board of the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL), as well as the other members of the international school library community who shared their expertise and their passion for the project.
