Every year, LRS conducts a survey of Colorado school libraries. And, we’re continually thinking about how the results can be made more useful to respondents as well as to school library stakeholders. With this goal in mind, we are excited to debut our new school library profiles, which present information about individual school libraries based on the results of the 2013-14 survey responses. These are available in two formats:
- Summary Profile: This profile presents information about the weekly use, collection, technology, and library hours of individual school libraries.
- Expanded Profile: This profile contains this same information as the summary profile, and additionally presents data about the instructional and leadership activities of individual school librarians.
The profiles were designed to be a companion piece to our school library impact infographic.This piece summarizes two decades of school library research that demonstrates the impact of school libraries on student achievement.
