What the Library of Congress Has for Teachers: Primary Sources and Tools and Techniques to Use Them | Teaching with the Library of Congress | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Primary sources are more important to teachers than ever before, and the Library of Congress makes it easy not only to find great primary sources, but also to quickly and effectively use them in your teaching.

The Library is one of the world’s largest sources of free primary sources, with more than 30 million items available via easy searching at www.loc.gov. U.S. history, English and language arts, science, world history and cultures–there are primary sources for almost every discipline.

School Libraries and Student Achievement - School Librarian in Action | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

In 2008, Scholastic published a compilation of school library researches dubbed as School Libraries Work! This document contains position statements of the National Commission on Library and Information Science of the US and highlights of school library related researches that were conducted in nineteen US states (from Alaska to Colorado; Ohio to Pennsylvania; Missouri to New Mexico) and in one Canadian province (Ontario). Researches conducted by the groups of Lance et.al (2002); Kuhlthau et. al (2004); Smith (2006); Todd (2004, 2005,. 2006) spanning two decades showed similarly remarkable findings.

Pew Internet is out with a NEW report that focuses solely on library patron (public library patrons to be specific) usage of ebooks and some related issues. Kudos to Pew for the broad picture since libraries are about more than ebooks.The report runs 80 pages.
