In PA schools, movement to keep school librarians on the books

In PA schools, movement to keep school librarians on the books | School Library Digest | Scoop.it
Photo by Wikimedia Commons Things may be looking up for school libraries in the commonwealth. Researchers say school libraries across Pennsylvania are still lacking the proper resources, but staffing levels may be increasing in the next school year.

Biagini, associate professor of information science at the University of Pittsburgh, assisted with the surveys. The big drop happened about three years ago with state budget cuts, when about 100 school librarian positions were eliminated.
