Thank you to everyone that participated in the 2021 Australian School Library Survey.
The survey results provide a critical reference point for changes, impacts, and trends across school libraries in Australia. Softlink will continue to work with industry associations to help advocate the role of school libraries and teacher librarians to Education Ministers, departments, and decision makers, as well as through industry networks.
Your willingness to participate and share information about your school library means that we can continue to provide this valuable, annual analysis of school libraries.
We would also like to thank all the School Library Associations and Partners that assisted in the promotion of the Survey…
While every care is taken to include all promoters of the survey, please do contact us if we have missed you so we can update this page.
Softlink is proud to continue to sponsor and grow this initiative. We are always looking for ways to improve and refine the School Library Survey and associated reports and whitepapers. If you would like to offer feedback, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
