The changes in technology over the past 25 years have impacted the standards that regulate school libraries. These standards were written and established by various organizations such as the American Association of School Librarians, the Association for Educational Communications and Technology, the International Society for Technology in Education, and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The school librarian is expected to incorporate the standards established by these organizations into their curriculum to ensure students are meeting the expectations. This paper explores how technology changes over the past 25 years have impacted the standards for school library media centers. Research of peer reviewed journals, articles, books, and Web pages was used to review the literature on the changes in school library standards over the last 25 years as related to technology changes. The research concluded that technology has had a lasting impact on school library standards and school libraries.
