A strong school library program includes instruction to support student achievement. To that end, OASL developed the Oregon School Library Standards, and they were adopted by the State Board of Education in 2015. The standards address the following areas: Information Literacy, Reading Engagement, Social Responsibility, and Technology Integration.

These standards were adopted by the State Board of Education in 2015.
