The integration of technology into curricula and emergence of new areas of practice for school librarians that promote equity and access, such as culturally responsive-sustaining education, are expanding the school librarian’s influence beyond the school walls as they connect the school to the global community of learners. In its 2018 National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries, the American Association of School Libraries (AASL) recognizes and defines 5 roles of school librarians that are crucial to the development and significance of effective school library programs: Teacher, Leader, Instructional Partner, Information Specialist, and Program Administrator. At the request of the New York State Education Department, this brief will delve into these 5 roles of the school librarian by identifying key aspects of each role and discussing how school leaders can ensure they are making the best use of their librarians' expertise. Based on the findings and promising practices outlined in the research analyzed here, we will summarize some ways in which administrators can support professional learning and institutes of higher education can prepare school librarians to effectively take on these new roles.

This textbook, for school library administration courses, is written by a professor who has taught this course at least once a year for the past twenty years. Technology is interwoven throughout the book and not listed as a separate chapter or book section. This is because the school librarian of today and certainly the school librarian of tomorrow is working in an environment of web resources, multimedia, mixed methods, and varying programs and services. Major chapters cover the various roles of the school librarian, curricular standards and guidelines, policies and procedures, budgeting, facilities, personnel, services, programming, ethics, advocacy, and evaluation. Sample policies, procedures, and plans make this book valuable to both new and experienced school librarians."
