To align library standards to other disciplines, of course! Karen Gross, in a blog post for the U. Aligning school library standards to standards for other disciplines is critical to success in the school library profession.
Also knowing how those various content area standards mesh with school library standards establishes the foundation for collaboration between school librarians and classroom teachers and strengthens learning for students through interdisciplinary experiences. Crosswalks between the National School Library Standards and other sets of national standards will enable school librarians to continue that valuable work.

For instance, the Future Ready Librarians Framework consists of very general statements aligning to actions of school librarians and how they impact student learning, where the AASL National School Library Standards provide more specific statements on what those actions should be.
AASL will review other possible standards sets for crosswalks moving forward, and there are plans to provide professional learning resources to assist practitioners in developing their own local crosswalks to supplement the national crosswalks created by the association.
