The State of School Libraries in Queensland
Updated: Jun 4, 2021
My biggest challenge for 2021 so far was to compile a snapshot of the state of play for school libraries and library staff in Queensland. The Students Need School Libraries Queensland ePetition gave the impetus for gathering a clearer picture, or a glimpse, into the current provisioning of Queensland school libraries and the strengths and opportunities of school libraries. I felt it was vital to include examples of specific practices to reveal the nuances within work that we do and the way in which we amplify learning. The results of a state-wide survey and accompanying discussion are now live and published in the latest issue of ACCESS (Vol. 35, Issue 2 June, 2021). The issue is full of fabulous articles exploring all facets of teacher librarianship (including ACCESS' very own tbt with an article by founding editor Andrew Perry).
