School Librarians Advancing STEM Learning

Expanding the role of K-12 school librarians as instructional leaders

Learn About the Project

The goal is to support professional learning cohorts to elevate and expand the role of school librarians, and transform their capacities as instructional leaders, who support advancements in STEM learning.

Participants will collaboratively create and review curriculum using ISKME’s OER Commons library of freely available resources. The resources developed will support student critical thinking, analysis, and problem solving across STEM disciplines as well as close reading of texts and math integration, in alignment with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and state and national science standards.

The project is led by ISKME, in partnership with the New Hampshire Department of Education, Granite State College, and New Hampshire's Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) Network. The project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The institute of Museum and Library Services ( is the primary source of support for the nation's 123,000 libraries and 35,000 museums.
