AASL Resource Guides for School Library Media Program Development

Topics beginning with:
A | B | CE | F | I | L | M | N | P | R | S | T | W

These web-based guides comprise a working bibliography of resources gathered by AASL staff and members to assist us in answering the many requests for information about school libraries that we receive throughout the year. The requests for information come not only from school librarians, but also from principals, parents, charter school organizers, library paraprofessionals, government officials, and college instructors.

Books, journal articles, Web sites, and other media are included. See our "Selection Policy and Review Process" for details. The print publications are from several publishers and their appearance on this bibliography should not be taken as a recommendation to purchase. We suggest local collection development policies and procedures be followed before making decisions for purchase.

The items are arranged alphabetically by frequently used topics in the professional literature. The bibliography is a work-in-progress and will be continually revised and updated. Suggestions for additions from members and especially from AASL committees and sections are welcome.
