American Association of School Librarians

The American Association of School Librarians (AASL), established in 1951, is a division of the American Library Association (ALA). Prior to 1951, school librarians were served by the School Library Section of ALA founded in 1914 which itself emerged from the Roundtable of Normal and High School Librarians which met first in 1913.[1] The mission of the American Association of School Librarians is to advocate excellence, facilitate change, and develop leaders in the school library field.[2]
