The purpose of the Illinois Standards Aligned Instruction for Libraries (I-SAIL) document is to empower, educate, and encourage school library information specialists to plan strategically with other teachers to incorporate information literacy skills in lessons and thereby provide college and career readiness for students.

The new I-SAIL is here! This document replaces the previous version. Below you will find the links for each grade level. This allows you to print out only the grade levels you need. You will also find a one page "Tips for Using I-SAIL" below with some ideas on how to use I-SAIL as an advocacy tool in your district.
