Findings: The amount of published research on school librarianship has increased more than 100 percent over the decade, but this does not represent a proportional increase in the amount of research actually carried out through the period.

Abstract: This paper reports on one aspect of a wider longitudinal study of "Research and researchers in school librarianship". Research articles and conference papers published in English over the ten-year period 1991-2000 in the field of school librarianship were analysed to identify the country of the research, the type of publication in which the research was reported, the research methods used, and the aspects of school librarianship that were investigated. Changes and trends in the research through the decade are described and emerging issues are discussed. The methodology draws on studies that looked at aspects of research in the broader field of library and information science generally, in an international context. See:
