School Library Journal has launched a national survey about resource expenditures in school library media centers. Results from this survey will be the basis of an article in SLJ this Spring.
The survey asks about LMC expenditures, available technology and program elements from the last school year (2009-2010). To preview the survey, please click here for a survey pdf. Estimated time to take the survey is approximately 20 minutes.
Please click the link below to fill out the survey online – OR – the completed survey pdf may be faxed back to 646-380-0756. You will have the opportunity to print out your answers for your records once you submit the survey online.
SLJ Spending Survey
Because we have a tight deadline for this survey, we are giving away two Apple iPads as incentives. Please complete the survey by December 23, 2010. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Girmscheid at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know how much effort you put into compiling this information, and we appreciate it. This data—which SLJ has been collecting for years—provides important insight into the state of school libraries. Many school library leaders and researchers have noted the reports as the only up-to-date report on expenditures and trends in school library development.
Please share this information with other school library media specialists in your district and encourage their participation in this important research effort.
