This is the "Alaska Study" that was conducted by Keith Curry Lance, Christine Hamilton-Pennell, Marcia J. Rodney, with Lois Petersen in 1999. This is the Executive Summary of an assessment of the impact of Alaska school librarians on academic achievement in the state's public schools.
SBC Pacific Bell survey of curriculum leaders in California's 25 largest school districts shows that the overriding issue for California schools is academic achievement. School library media centers are being looked at in a different light given the drive for increased student achievement, with under-staffing being the top issue, coupled with equity of accwss to library resources.

School districts define the function of a library and the role of the library media specialist in a variety of ways. As a youngster growing up in Medford, Oregon, and graduating from its school system, I did not have an opportunity to meet a "real" librarian until entering junior high school in grade 7. In elementary school, classroom teachers filled the narrowly defined role of the librarian, which at the time was simply to assist students in checking out library books. In 1985, after a 16 year absence, I returned to Medford and became superintendent of schools. At that time, I found that the function of the library had remained basically the same, that is, a warehouse of books, but support for those responsible to oversee it had deteriorated even more. Classroom teachers had minimal involvement in the library. Non-certified staff, with no formal training in instruction, no child development background, no knowledge of reading levels of students, and no course work in libraries were ordering library books and checking them out to students. A concerted effort to place certified library media specialists in the district's thirteen elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools began in 1986 and was completed in 1990. At the same time, the classified employees previously assigned to the library media center were retained and inserviced to support the program to ensure that the certified library media specialists had time to perform the duties for which they had been trained.

Information for Teachers and Media Specialists
Program Description and Purpose
The Oregon Institute of Technology Library welcomes visits from high schools in the Klamath Basin. The Library's Outreach Program was created to promote collaboration with high school media specialists and classroom teachers. Our goal is to develop students' research skills and appreciation of the power of information. Library teaching efforts focus on the use of library resources, qualitative evaluation of information, and electronic search techniques. OIT librarians provide tours of the facility as well as hands-on class instruction in the use of traditional and electronic information resources. The program gives students the opportunity for guided exploration and use of an academic library.
Before Visiting the Library
  • Make arrangements for the visit/instruction session at least two weeks prior to the scheduled date. OIT student use of the library must be our priority, therefore high school tours and instruction will not be available during peak-use hours or during OIT's Dead or Finals weeks.
  • Provide the library with student assignment topics, so that these topics may be incorporated as examples into the instruction session.

Service and Information Skills in Oregon High School Library Centers
by Diane Claus-Smith, North Salem High School Library, Media Specialist
Colleagues at public and academic libraries have often asked me about school library media centers. Here are some answers to their questions.
Encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases and specialized reference works form the backbone of a high school print reference collection. Most high school library media centers are equipped with standard reference resources, depending upon the size of their student body, curriculum specialty areas and, of course, budgetary limitations. Currency is often an issue because of financial constraints. Often gaps in collections occur because of budget shortfalls or changes in priorities. Purchases of high cost reference materials may be deferred in place of electronic or online resources. This may result in a spotty reference collection quite difficult to reinstate. Vertical files are often an important part of the reference section.
Students are apt to use print encyclopedias, biographical dictionaries and atlases when large classes visit the library and electronic resources are limited. General reference materials in science, history, literature and art are used heavily for research papers. Specialized reference tools like "CQ Researcher" are helpful for current interest topics or for the student who needs suggestions for a paper concept. Students with specific research needs consult quotation books and poetry indexes in a limited way.
