Perspectives: Global

Vol. 14 No. 2 (2016)

Window on the World of School Librarianship

May 3, 2019


This global project of the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL), first completed in 2016 after three years’ work, offers profiles of 230 countries with information of relevance in building a global perspective on school libraries. These profiles are focused around the school library situation in each country, acquired through contacts with local informed people and/or through research.

It is designed as a means of advocacy for school libraries and for IASL, as an evolving repository for the information IASL gathers about the state of school libraries across the world, as a resource for information and connection, as a starting point for further research and as a framework to centralise this information and make it available.
