  • In the twenty first century the expectations of librarians and users have radically changed. The development of the Internet, in particular the World Wide Web, has resulted in a radical change in access to information and services. Australians have been rapid adopters of communications technologies, in particular the Internet. The December 18 2008 release of the ABS publication Household Use of Information Technology , Australia, 2007-08  (http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Latestproducts/8146.0Main%20Features12007-08?opendocument&tabname=Summary&prodno=8146.0&issue=2007-08&num=&view=) found: As of June 30 2008 the total Broadband connections were at 4.3 million (52% of all households), an increase of 22% on last years total. The Australian Capital Territory has the highest proportion of Broadband connections, at 68% of households while Tasmania (39%) and South Australia (42%) were the lowest. Other states ranged from 51 to 55%. 67% of Australian households had home Internet access and 75% of households had access to a computer. This is more than a five-fold increase in the number of household Internet connections over the last ten years. Socio-economic characteristics of households continue to influence the rate of computer, Internet and Broadband connections across Australia. For example, in relation to Broadband access: Metropolitan areas had considerably higher proportion of Broadband connections (57%) than other areas (43%). Households with children under 15 had higher Broadband access (67%) compared to households without (46%). Those households with an income of $120,000 had substantially higher rates of access (81%) than households incomes of less than $40,000 (38%). Getting to places remains a key challenge – (also see http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/4102.0Chapter10002008)

Government services example: Increasing demand. Most librarians report increasing client use of individual Government websites, for both content information and process or transaction based purposes. An invisible draw on resources. While libraries were aware of some high-demand government online services, librarians rarely had an overview of all government services accessed by their clients. As a result, government online services created a largely invisible demand on public library resources. Unintended impacts. Government agencies put services online in order to provide better access to their users to and streamline their own operations. Most agencies do not understand that their actions place extra burdens on public libraries.” (State Library of New South Wales 2004, p. 1)
  • ABS Labour force survey, Australia 2005 http://www.alia.org.au/emplocyment/labour.market
  • A 2008 joint project between Edith Cowan University, the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) and the Australian Libraries Information Association (ALIA) found that 29 per cent of schools in general (and 54 per cent of government schools) have an annual budget of less than $5 000 to provide curriculum support, reading materials and electronic resources.3 According to the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA), many school libraries receive budgets below 1975 levels. The CBCA Library Survey (2010) found that the average school library budget of respondent schools today equates to just $25 per child.

  • HALF of all Australians lack the minimum reading, writing and problem-solving skills to cope with life in the modern world. A new survey on life skills by the Australian Bureau of Statistics reveals 46 per cent of the population, or seven million people, would struggle to understand the meaning of newspaper and magazine articles or documentation such as maps and payslips. And 53 per cent reached just the second of five levels in a practical numeracy test, while 70 per cent, the equivalent of 10.6 million people, only managed to progress to level 2 in a series of problem-solving exercises. "Level 3 is regarded by the survey developers as the minimum required for individuals to meet the complex demands of everyday life and work in the emerging knowledge-based economy,“ said the ABS report, Adult Literacy and Life Skills. http://www.ausstats.abs.gov.au/ausstats/subscriber.nsf/0/B22A471C221C7BADCA2573CA00207F10/$File/42280_2006%20(reissue).pdf

    16. 16. Inquiry into school libraries andteacher librarians
    17. 17.  29 per cent of schools in general (and 54 per cent of government schools) have an annual budget of less than $5 000 to provide curriculum support, reading materials and electronic resources. According to the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA), many school libraries receive budgets below 1975 levels. (in 2010) the average school library budget of respondent schools today equates to just $25 per child.
    18. 18.  A vicious cycle has resulted from under- resourcing school libraries and having insufficient numbers of appropriately qualified staff in them, leading to a poorer quality service, which reduces the demand for teacher librarians ... The Committee has been struck by the breadth of anecdotal evidence that it received demonstrating the significant contribution to learning outcomes in primary and secondary schools that a fully resourced school library, when staffed by a fully qualified and active teacher librarian, can make.
    19. 19. Recommendations
    20. 20. Literacy Over 6 million Australian adults (47%) dont have adequate literacy skills to cope with the demands of everyday life and work (level 1/2). Only 17% of adult Australians had literacy skills at levels 4/5. ABS 1996
