The history of the New Jersey Association of School Librarians shows the tremendous progress the Association and the profession have made since 1915. NJASL advocates high standards for librarianship and library media programs in the public, private, and parochial schools in New Jersey to ensure that students and staff become effective users of information. The Association fosters excellence in the school library media program by providing school librarians with educational opportunities and current information through mentoring, online and print publications, workshops and conferences.
