AASL's National Longitudinal Survey of
School Library Programs
AASL sponsors a longitudinal survey to provide data on the health of the nation's school library programs. The annual survey is open to library centers at all schools teaching at the primary and secondary levels. The first survey was conducted in 2007 and results from each year are available for review . Most of the questions are tracking questions, though, each year the survey includes a short series of topical questions. In 2012, the topical questions were focused on filtering and online access.
