Leveraging social capital leads to school library program success. School librarians who co-develop an AASL-defined “Effective School Library Program” (AASL 2016a) and achieve the “Instructional Role of the School Librarian” (2016b) must build collaborative relationships to seamlessly integrate AASL’s National School Library Standards into the classroom curriculum.


By applying a systems thinking approach (Senge et al. 2012), school librarians can identify and nurture relationships in order to collaboratively solve instructional challenges. They can be leaders in diffusing innovations in teaching and learning throughout the school (Rogers 1995). Using AASL’s “collaboration” definition (2016a), participants will engage in a series of hands-on activities framed by AASL’s “Think, Create, Share, and Grow” themes.
