2010 Survey “School Libraries Count!” Now Open
We invite you to participate in the 2010 “School Libraries Count!” survey.
This is the fourth year of the annual survey, part of a longitudinal study which collects important information about all K-12 school libraries–public and private–across the country. Your participation is crucial to this survey.
Please click on this link to enter the survey: http://www.aaslsurvey.org. The last day to complete the survey is April 30th, 2010. We would also encourage you to forward this email to other school librarians so they can participate.
The study gathers basic data about the status of school library programs across the country, which AASL will use to develop advocacy tools to support school libraries at the local, state and national levels. If you have participated in the past, your continued participation is essential in developing our longitudinal study research which will examine trend development over the course of several years.
New set of topical questions
There are new additional questions in this year’s survey. The new questions will cover the impact of digital content and resources on school library programs and student learning.
