The School Librarian Investigation
Decline or Evolution?

SLIDE: The School Librarian Investigation—Decline or Evolution? is an exploratory project submitted by Antioch University Seattle and funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services for $348,905, to be conducted from September 2020 through August 2023.  The research will determine patterns in the continuing, national decline in school librarian positions and how school districts decide to staff library, learning resources, and instructional technology programs for K-12 students.
