A Ten-Year Reflection
Knowledge Quest Volume 45, Number 1, ISSN 1094-9046
Five initiatives launched during Cyndi Phillip's term as American Association of School Librarians (AASL) President (2006-2007) continue to have an impact on school librarians ten years later. They include the rewriting of AASL's learning standards, introduction of the SKILLS Act, the presentation of the Crystal Apple Award to Scholastic Library Publishing for their first "School Libraries Work" reports, revitalizing School Library Month, and establishing the AASL Best Websites for teaching and Learning Committee. AASL is a vibrant and evolving association that works to meet the needs of its members in the present as well as into the future. Reflecting on how the above five activities from Philips' presidential year have evolved and remained relevant through the past ten years, Philips writes that she is amazed, and excited to see what the next ten years will bring.
