Survey results revealed that the 295 respondents work in well-resourced libraries with personnel assistance as well as numerous computers and devices. Respondents reported that they led school technology integration in many areas but also had areas in which to improve, such as providing services to special needs learners, building digital collections, participating in student assessment, and transferring their leadership success to professional and local communities.

My role as the Teacher Librarian offered me the understanding and initiatives through the wide range of external TL PD and the opportunities in the job itself, to become the school's Learning Technologies Coordinator.I enjoyed this position for 5 years while the school staff went through a huge ICT learning curve! I retired in 2011 and subsequently was offered a part time professional position at another school training and inservicing staff to integrate learning technologies into their programs at the secondary school level.

Although evidence demonstrating how quality school library programs improve
student learning has been in existence since Mary Gaver’s original work in 1963, the
research has never been well disseminated beyond the school library profession. In an effort to help school administrators and other stakeholders to better understand the importance of providing equitable, instructional school library services, the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association (PSLA) decided to update their website to include the major findings from the landmark body of research known as the “school library impact studies.”
