CHICAGO – In order to provide a refreshing and inspiring image of school librarians and school library programs, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) has launched two national surveys to examine the brands of the profession. The surveys will determine what the brands “school librarian,” “L4L” and “@your library” mean to current and future school library professionals and educational stakeholders.
School librarians are not only encouraged to complete the profession-focused survey, but to ask members of their educational communities to take the stakeholder survey as well. The comparison between the data collected from each survey will help AASL determine how it can best address gaps and meet the needs of both groups.

The survey will be open through Dec. 2, 2013. To reach a wide audience and collect a representative sample, AASL will also reach out to several national educational organizations and request their help in disseminating the stakeholder survey to their memberships.
