The Annual International Conference of the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) will be held in Tokyo in August 2016. At a concurrently held forum, notable writers, researchers and people from the school library and educational fields worldwide will meet together to discuss the challenges currently faced by school libraries and their future. We hope that the presented research outcomes of the forum will elucidate the tasks facing the school libraries, and will give us the opportunity to think together about arriving at solutions. These days, school libraries are reaching beyond their traditional boundaries and growing into hubs that interconnect schools and the world at large. All the committee members look forward to your participation in the 2016 IASL Tokyo.
