This year’s spending survey covers the 2010–2011 academic year. In November 2011, School Library Journal emailed its online survey to 6,500 school librarians. In total, 602 school libraries answered the survey; their representation by student enrollment or grade level doesn’t differ significantly from the 2011 survey by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). Presents findings on the status of school library budgets and staffing, the main tasks undertaken by library media specialists, status of collections, including digital collections and introduction of ebooks/ereaders, and the role of the SLM in digital citizenship education. This article also presents a call for stronger advocacy within the school library profession to ensure school libraries are not compromised with increasing budgetary pressures of school districts.
