Closing the Gap in Librarian, Faculty Views of Academic Libraries | Research | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"In this age of outcomes measurement, many academic librarians are focused—and rightly so—on making sure they best serve students. Yet students are not the only population of end users on an academic campus. Faculty, too, are conduits not only to students but to library users in their own right. As well, studies of faculty attitudes such as Ithaka’s often show that, even as faculty increasingly depend on library-brokered online access to expensive databases and electronic journals, the off-site availability of modern resources may leave many faculty members less aware of the crucial role of the library in their and their students’ workflow."

"Findings from Softlink’s annual Australian School Library Survey have revealed a positive link between literacy results and school library resourcing levels. The 2012 survey found schools with higher than the national average NAPLAN reading literacy scores received above average levels of library funding and staffing. 

A comparable result was identified between schools with low NAPLAN scores and low funding levels, with the relationship’s significance increasing from primary to secondary school.  These results were echoed in the 2010 and 2011 surveys."
