Thanks for the nudge to learn. I'm excited to dig deeper and learn more. You have assembled a great deal of information that is amazing - please continue to lead on this topic . . .
Doug Johnson has posted a 13 Point Library Media Program Checklist for School Principals, 2009

It's a good checklist to assess our programs.
I printed this list out yesterday. I agree, it is a good list.

Former AASL president, Frances Roscello, shared the NY SED new draft rubric for library media programs. It looks good and would be a worthwhile tool for self-assessment.

The new AASL online Planning Guide for Empowering Learners subscriptions are available. I just got mine and will talk about the Guide at the CASL conference Nov. 8, 2010 and the VSLA conference on Oct. 21 in Manchester, VT.
I hope you have a chance to explore a free trial of the new Planning Guide online assessment tool; just call Encyclopedia Britannica 1-800-621-3900 in order to get your one-week trial that begins each Wednesday. Also on Oct. 24th, AASL added a new toolkit for building level implementation. Check it out.
Great blog by Susan Ballard: http://tinyurl.com/6fjpcbs  is based on her article in the Jan/Feb Knowledge Quest.  Read the full article.

Great SLJ article by Christopher Harris on implementing the Common Core and AASL Guidelines with many valuable links & ideas.

Here is my PowerPoint from my session "L4L: Strategies for Success" at the CASL/CLC mini conference @ Chase Collegiate in Waterbury today.  I had to pare it down to the essentials to align with the Ning file limit of 5MB.  The full presentation can be found on the CASL website along with the other mini conference presentations and on the CASL listserv.

It was good to see everyone this morning.  Thank you again for the positive feedback.  I really appreciated it.

Remember, if you have a professional concern that you think AASL has not addressed, please let me know so that we can request action from the national association.

Here is the PPT.

School Librarians in the Anytime Anywhere Learning Landscape is an exciting opportunity for school librarians to learn how to best support their communities while taking a prominent leadership role in navigating a new frontier. Much like a GPS helps you locate and find your way through an ever increasingly complex landscape, the school librarian locates and leads blended learning activities through the school library program.
