However compelling the research is, it can be hard to make the case with a 30-page study, or even a executive summary.

Sometimes you need the visually attractive, embeddable, tweetable version of the elevator speech.

Over the past couple of months we’ve seen a research translated and chunked in the form of infographics.  We’ve also seen a few infographics that visually convey the school library advocacy message.

The Library Research Service recently shared an infographic presenting meta-view–highlights of many years and many states of LRS school library impact studies that connect school libraries with student achievement and improved reading.  With simple graphics, the poster also illustrates specific school library characteristics associated with achievement.
