Common Core Standards

As librarians, it is important for us to acknowledge shifts in education standards and how they might affect the way students find and engage with information at the library.  The Common Core State Standards Initiative has become a large part of the education realm, meaning that as librarians, we should have a solid understanding of the standards.
A wonderful resource for understanding Common Core is  The site allows you to explore the standards from a basic walk-through of the highlights to an in-depth reading.  A great tool for building non-fiction and fiction collections that will complement the work being done in schools!
