A school library media specialist in one of the top ten states has a fairly good chance of knowing someone who has gone through the certification process, or one who can be a partner to go through it together. A school library media specialist in one of the four states in which there are no NBCTs will have to go through it alone. This makes a difference. In fall 2002 the American Association of School Librarians attempted to mitigate that difference by hosting a forum on NBPTS certification. Each state affiliate was asked to send a team of one school library media representative from higher education, one affiliate leader, and one building-level library media specialist to the forum.

Standards seven to ten are the following: Standard Seven: Reflective Practice Standard Eight: Professional Growth Standard Nine: Ethics, Equity, and Diversity Standard Ten: Leadership, Advocacy, and Community Partnerships 40 The ECYA /Library Media Standards Standard Seven: Reflective Practice This standard has two elements.
