Include, part of a six-volume series on the Shared Foundations in AASL’s National School Library Standards, brings together a chorus of school librarians, scholars, and students representing a wide range of races, ethnicities, experiences, and identities. This book offers

  • an understanding of why the concept of Include is paramount to school librarian practice, supported by key research to share and inspire the inclusion of learner and educator voices and experiences;
  • an explanation of what it looks like to successfully integrate the Include Shared Foundation in terms of collection, space, and instruction; 
  • useable guidance that school librarians can confidently incorporate in their settings , including easy-to-implement ideas, inspiring stories, events, and transformation; and
  • reflections, questions, and action steps to help readers move their practice forward.

Examination copies are available for instructors who are interested in adopting this title for course use.
