Impact of School Library Media Centers on Academic Achievement An article from School Library Media Quarterly by Keith Curry Lance, Director, Library Research Service, Colorado which details the Colorado study which looked at the relationship between funding of Library media centers and student achievement. One conclusion was that students at schools with better-funded Library media centers tend to achieve higher average reading scores, whether their schools and communities are rich or poor and whether adults in their community are well or poorly educated.

10. Legislation Proposed To Set Standards For Library Media Centers: Fact Sheet
FACT SHEET massachusetts school Library media centers. THE PROBLEM massachusetts education policy makers are not supporting the power of school library media centers to help students achieve.
Massachusetts School Library Media Centers THE PROBLEM:

Massachusetts education policy makers are not supporting the power of school library media centers to help students achieve. There is great inequity in access to quality literature, information and library professionals in schools throughout the state.
  • Of the fifty (50) U.S. states, Massachusetts ranks:
      in providing its public school students with state-certified library media specialists, in teachers who agree that school library materials are adequate to support educational objectives, in providing its public schools with school libraries and in mean circulation per pupil per school of all library materials. The 1999 Simmons Study of MA School Library Media Centers found that:
        of Massachusetts elementary schools did not have full-time library professionals on staff, of public schools did not have a library media center, an average of $12.00 per child is spent for school library books – less than half the average cost of one hardcover children’s book. The MA Department of Education has no administrator designated to provide leadership and set standards for school library media programs statewide.

School Library Teacher Concentration
School library teachers (SLT) manage the library media technology centers that serve as the hubs of information and educational activity in schools. In addition to working directly with children and young adults, they collaborate with classroom teachers and provide information resources that enhance school curriculum. For individuals who seek certification as school library teachers, the GSLIS School Library Teacher program provides exceptional academic and professional training. The National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) endorses our program and external accrediting agencies commend us on the program's outstanding quality. Simmons SLT students are noted for their exceptionally high pass rates on the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL). The SLT program prepares students for NASDTEC library teacher licensure. NASDTEC certification for the Northeastern region is valid in 26 states including Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Rhode Island. In addition to monitored fieldwork and a school practicum at the elementary-school or secondary-school level, course requirements include: Emerging Technologies and the Library Media Center (

Evaluation Form, from the Beyond Proficiency document of the Kentucky school media Association massachusetts Standards for school Library media centers.
Library Media Program Objectives :
Defining the Librarian's Responsibilities and Evaluation
Objectives for school library media programs adhere to the concepts found in the Information Power guidelines . Defining objectives is a function of the school library media specialist in partnership with administrators, teachers, staff, students, and parents. Objectives for the program become the school librarian's responsibility within the school and the library. The school librarian's evaluation should be based on the performance of those defined responsibilites. Here are some examples of program objectives that a school library media center might have, illustrated with sample action items (the school librarian's responsibilities). Learning and Teaching Objective:
We will provide resources and activities to promote student achievement and teacher knowledge, working collaboratively to help students achieve the Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements and district learning requirements. (Sample action items here)
Information Access and Delivery Objective
We will provide access to information technologies, print resources, and systems, working collaboratively to help students and teachers achieve academic and personal success.

WASHINGTON, DC, March 23, 1999 Despite significant growth in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget, new analyses have found that medical schools and teaching hospitals in highly competitive markets are experiencing difficulty in conducting research and securing federal research grants. A study in the March 24 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that medical schools and teaching hospitals—known as academic health centers (AHCs)—in highly competitive markets have fewer discretionary funds to support research than their counterparts in markets not dominated by managed care. In fact, internal funding for research was almost twice as high for AHCs in less competitive markets such as Chicago or Atlanta (6.1 percent of total funds) than it was in more competitive markets such as Minneapolis–St. Paul or San Diego (2.5 percent of total funds). The study indicates that this discrepancy is cause for concern given that many researchers are highly dependent on internal funding for their work.
