Studying the Independent School Library
Cahoy, Ellysa Stern; Williamson, Susan G.

In 2005, the American Association of School Librarians' Independent Schools Section conducted a national survey of independent school libraries. This article analyzes the results of the survey, reporting specialized data and information regarding independent school library budgets, collections, services, facilities, and staffing. Additionally, the survey results highlight the current state of the independent school library environment and identify distinct differences between specific types of independent schools as well as differences with public school libraries. In this study, the authors show that the greater number of resources in these independent schools over public schools correlates with a higher success rate for students attending these independent schools. (Contains 9 figures.)
