An immersive and essential study of the Shared Foundations will help school library professionals deepen their context with the National School Library Standards, broaden their perspectives, make connections for personal relevance, and innovate and reflect on their practice. Although this six-book series is dedicated to the deep exploration of individual Shared Foundations, the AASL Standards frameworks cannot be implemented in isolation. Each title in this series exhibits unique priorities and parallel properties, much like the Shared Foundations themselves.
