Lance/Russell Article to Appear in Best of Knowledge Quest

An article entitled Scientifically-Based Research on School Libraries and Academic Achievement will be included in the first edition of a new series, The Best of Knowledge Quest. Originally published in the May/June 2004 issue of Knowledge Quest–a journal of the American Association of School Librarians–the article was co-authored by Keith Curry Lance and Becky Russell (then an LRS Senior Research Analyst, now with Denver Public Library). Co-editors Donald Adcock and Patricia Montiel-Overall identified the article as one of “a select number of outstanding articles on a topic of current interest to the profession that have appeared in Knowledge Quest during the past few years.”
