Maine School Library Survey. Statistics of Public School Libraries in Maine Serving Grades K-12, from Data Gathered February 1990.
Soule, Margaret
This survey of the current status of public school libraries in Maine was intended to provide statistical data as a basis for improving the school library media center program in these schools. Information was gathered that detailed how resources and delivery of services differed across grade level; across variation in size of school; between schools with and without a certified school library media specialist; and across the state's three library districts. Responses were received from less than 30 schools in each of 4 reporting divisions, including secondary and junior high/middle schools without certified librarians, and secondary schools and junior high/middle schools with part-time certified librarians. This report contains background information and the terminology used in the survey; highlights of the survey; a summary of 13 key findings; and 11 appendices, including charts comparing seven key characteristics (e.g., school size, student population, and staffing); a description of the study methodology; survey forms; survey results and details for each question; and the standard deviations and ranges for selected questions. Data tables make up the major part of this report. (MAB)
