|This article describes recent curricular changes being made to the Educational Administration program at the University of Southern Mississippi to include information regarding the value of quality school library programs and the effective management of such programs. Faculty involved in the course changes are also conducting a two-part study to determine the current status of public school libraries in Mississippi, their impact on academic achievement, and how the perceptions of teachers, principals and librarians shape the function and use of those libraries. The results of the first phase of the study are described.
