Current Call for Papers

School Libraries Worldwide Volume 24, Number 1 (January 2018)


School Libraries Worldwide welcomes submissions of excellent research on any topic relating to school librarianship for the open portion of the journal. School library researchers are invited to submit papers reporting their own original research that has not been published elsewhere. We are especially interested in research that documents school librarianship in a wide range of cultures, geographic locations, and/or diversities.

For the January 2018 issue, School Libraries Worldwides editors are especially interested in papers in which standards are an aspect of the research. With the release of the IFLA Standards for School Libraries (2015) and the AASL National School Library Standards (November 2017), standards are a timely and central topic in school librarianship/teacher librarianship. In developing and established school library communities, standards function as codified expressions of organizational culture that guide decision-making, functional activities, and professional work. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • ·      National and local curriculum standards for learners;
  • ·      Professional standards for school librarians/teacher librarians;
  • ·      Standards for school library facilities;
  • ·      Accreditation of school librarian/teacher librarian preparation programs;
  • ·      Accreditation of schools and libraries; and
  • ·      Codes of conduct and ethics.

Deadline for submissions of full papers: October 15, 2017.

Authors interested in contributing to this issue should contact the editors, Marcia Mardis (mmardis@fsu.edu) and Nancy Everhart (everhart@fsu.edu).
