Longwood faculty member publishes article in journal

March 31, 2011

Audrey Church

Dr. Audrey Church, associate professor and coordinator of the graduate-level School Library Media Program, recently had an article published in the School Library Monthly. The article, "Standards for Preparing 21st Century School Librarians," appears in the March 2011 issue.

The editor of the journal asked Church to write the article due to her experience with both writing and applying the standards as a program reviewer. Church chairs the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Coordinating Committee of the American Association of School Librarians. Over the past three years, the committee has worked to revise and upate the standards which are used to evaluate school librarian preparation programs across the United States. The new standards were approved by NCATE in October 2010.
