TEKSLink Project

The TEKSLink Project is not new but deserving of mention.
The purpose of the TEKSLink Project is to provide a tangible link between the materials located in the library media center and the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) standards used in the classroom.


TEKSLink provides the link between the standards and subject headings. By amending the authority record of the library catalog, a teacher can search by TEKS in the catalog, and the resulting materials are available in his or her campus library.

School libraries in Texas, should consider downloading these records into their systems, if not contributing in a more substantial way. Currently, the Elementary Science and Social Studies TEKS (except 5th grade Social Studies) are finished.
