Impact Studies

This theme identifies the work of CISSL researchers in an ongoing series of macro and micro impact studies of school libraries and their relationship to student learning. They seek to provide both quantitative and qualitative evidence on how school libraries help students with their learning, and to understand some of the complex dynamics that shape these impacts.

NJASL Research Study
One Common Goal: Student Learning

This research on behalf of the New Jersey Association of School Librarians, begun in April 2009, seeks to (a) construct a picture of the status of New Jersey's school libraries in terms of their informational-transformational-formational dimensions, (b) to understand the contribution of quality school libraries to education in New Jersey; (c) to understand some of the contextual and professional dynamics that enable and inhibit school libraries to contribute significantly to education in New Jersey, and (d) to make recommendations to NJ stakeholders to develop a sustained and long term program of capacity building and evidence-based continuous improvement of school libraries in New Jersey. Progress to date: Phase 1 Infrastructure study, is completed.
