Quebec Committee for New National School Library Standards

A Quebec committee is now being formed to work on the new book on national school library standards to be published by the Canadian Library Association. The book will be published as an eBook in English and French, and will be launched in May 2014 at the annual CLA conference.

The standards are being written by committees in each province. Each committee will be made up of a "learning commons" team: a school board librarian, a community librarian, a school library technician, a principal, a teacher, a parent, and a student.

The project is being led by Judith Sykes (author of _Achieving Information Literacy_), who will be the principal writer along with Carol Koechlin and Diana Gauthier.

If you would like more information or are interested in being on the committee, please don't hesitate to contact me.
