Library, Media and Information Literacy Best Practices

The Advocacy for School Libraries-Special Interest Group of the New Mexico Library Association is recommending schools adopt these best practices to unify and empower libraries statewide.

This document is the result of work by librarians, volunteering from around the state (see appendix 1), who reviewed the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner and past standards developed by New Mexican librarians. 

In an effort to assist with lesson planning, collection development and administration, we have a website established for school librarians to access and share their best practices.  

You will also find numerous links to websites and blogs in support of school libraries and librarians. Please join us by participating in the statewide network both online and in person at our workshops and conferences planned throughout the year. 

An Electronic Resources access point, through Gale Databases is paid for by the New Mexico State Library in Santa Fe. Schools and districts can supplement their digital collections of books, magazines, newspapers, and academic journals. To find a unique school access point, visit Gale Databases.
