Research so you don't have to re-search

Today will be spent in airplanes and rental cars as BH and I travel to Boothbay, Maine. So, I decided to post up some links here to important research on the effect of school librarians and adequate school library collections. I do this for a couple of reasons. One, I am asked to provide information when jobs are on the line. Two, many schools and districts are cutting library positions without considering what else they are losing in the process. So, cut and paste and copy and bookmark. Just keep these links at hand in case of emergency.

This is not an exhaustive list, but it should be a go-to starting point for anyone who wants to show the importance of a school library and a certified librarian.
