  • Chapter 3: p. 383.3 According to the School Libraries Work! study: A substantial body of evidence since 1990 shows a positive relationship between school libraries and student achievement. The research studies show that school libraries can have a positive impact on student achievement, whether such achievement is measured in terms of reading scores, literacy or learning more generally.3.12 The Ohio study has been replicated in Australia. Just under 7 000 students from years 7-12 in Queensland and Victorian schools responded to a survey conducted by Ms Hay of Charles Sturt University about how the library helped them. The results in Australia mirrored those in the United States, namely that: Where there is a well-resourced school library and a teacher librarian, the students indicated that both the environment and personnel contributed to their learning and supported them in their academic learning, in particular, helping them to prepare their work, to prepare presentations and to complete research tasks and assignments.
