Increases in eleventh grade reading scores are usually reported by Michigan high school libraries that have:
- higher numbers and weekly hours of librarian and total library staff;
- more total weekly hours of operation, and more weekly hours for flexible access/scheduling;
- librarian spending more time supporting school computer networks;
- larger collections of print volumes and video materials; and
- access to more computers—both in the library and throughout the school—that provide links to Access Michigan, library catalogs and licensed databases, and the Internet and the World Wide Web; and
- more frequent individual visits to the library [#9, #10]; and
- more money for library operations [#13].
