The deadline for the 2011-12 Colorado School Library Survey Has Been Extended to November 30, 2011. How cool is that?? If you could pass on the word to any school librarians you know who aren’t in CASL, I’d be eternally grateful.
If you have not yet responded to the survey, it can be accessed at http://http://www.lrs.org/slsurvey/.
You may not think it’s as urgent as an actual fire, but this year, as we continue to face yet another budget shortfall, it is more important than ever for us to provide critical data to our non-librarians/administrators who are the decision-makers of continued funding. You will notice in the newly revised survey that we will be able to provide a more accurate snapshot to administrators of what a school librarian SHOULD look like. Statistics from this survey will also help to show them what their students are missing when there is not a teacher-leader in the library.
We appreciate you investing the anticipated 15 extra minutes to help us with this bigger-picture goal that will ultimately impact all of us. For questions regarding the survey, or to obtain your username and password, feel free to call Library Research Service at 303-866-6900 or email http://firstname.lastname@example.org to get your information.
