Welcome to the Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries!

The Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries (CISSL), as the leading international center dedicated to school libraries worldwide, provides an arena for the international community of school library scholars and practitioners to generate produce and share a substantial body of rigorous research on the dynamics and impacts of school libraries on student learning.

CISSL enables the adoption, adaptation, and transformation of systematic research to practice. The center provides professional development that supports the implementation of research findings to the learning-centered practice of school libraries.

At the foundation of the center’s planning is a strong financial foundation that supports its short and long-term research and research-to-practice agenda.
