Oregon School Library Standards & Indicators (pdf) Adopted 2015, Revised 2019


These library standards speak to the needs of the 21st Century Learner. Information literacy, Reading Engagement, and Social Responsibility are important learning cornerstones for our students.  Students need an environment where they can formulate ideas and process information in ways that speak to them. The new School Library Standards provide direction so that the needs of this new generation of learners can be met.

More about the Standards:

A strong school library program prepares students to become future-ready citizens in an information-rich society, fostering critical thinking skills and collaborative learning opportunities among students and staff. Library instruction encompasses information literacy and educational technology, and includes purposeful attention to social responsibility skills, digital citizenship, and reading engagement for all students.  

The Oregon School Library Standards were developed to provide direction to school libraries for skill development and instruction. These standards were adopted by the State Board of Education on January 22, 2015 and are essential to meeting the needs of the 21st century learner.  The Oregon Department of Education points the OASL library standards as a model for library instruction in Oregon.
