Abstract: The International Association of School Librarianship [IASL] is a leading source in school library research. Many IASL authors work in academic institutions that now identify internationalism as a priority in their research goals. This article examines how IASL-published research accords with a wider academic mandate of internationalism. Moving toward an international focus that recognizes the scholars and contexts of developing countries requires rethinking roles and responsibilities of researchers, and challenging assumptions about emerging nations. Illustrated by the author’s work in Ethiopia, recommendations are made for ways that IASL can support school library research that reflects developed and developing countries.
