Recommended Minimum Information Services Staffing Levels

Oct 14, 2023 | Guidelines and Policies

It is expected that school libraries provide quality services, effective resourcing and relevant skill development for all learners in their community. To achieve these goals, it is essential that school libraries are well staffed. An exemplary school library is underpinned by professionally qualified library staff using their knowledge, core skills and expertise to support the learning and teaching as well as provide for recreational reading. 

Recently updated, we present the Recommended minimum information services staffing levels Table 6 Revised, which provides a guide for schools when making decisions about staffing their libraries. This table replaces the original from Learning for the future: developing information services in schools 2nd ed. 

Note: The final bold chunk currently is unlink ed in the web planner document, so no link is available
