Fast-Facts: Recent Statistics from the Library Research Service, n104-107 Sep 1995
Four issues of a newsletter on recent library statistics provide information on Colorado school library media centers, as well as census data on state and local government library spending. A 1994 survey of school library media centers reveals a lack of adequate library media staffing in half of the public elementary and secondary schools. According to another 1994 library survey, Colorado school library media centers are taking a leading role in providing electronic access to information and teaching information literacy. The 1990/91 and 1991/92 preliminary census data on government finances indicates that state and local expenditures for education and libraries are not "keeping pace" with total expenditures by those levels of government. A 1995 survey that compared information from the previous year found that technology of all types is more widely available in library media centers and library media staff participation in standards-based education continues to increase at modest rates; the practice of having classes of students visit library media centers on a fixed schedule appears to be falling sharply.
