A research study was conducted to examine how school librarians perceive dispositions for learning and social responsibility. This study was prompted by the fact that school librarians regularly discuss dispositions in action and their role in fostering them on blogs, on websites, and through listservs. In this informal approach to determine the need for a larger study, 46 school librarians in 20 states participated in administering an online questionnaire containing multiple-choice questions and one open-ended question that gave a list of dispositions. Thirty-eight participants responded to the open-ended question, and findings revealed that social responsibility was the most cited disposition. Other significant findings are discussed, with suggestions for the scope of a dissertation topic.
