2019 Survey of school libraries in New Zealand

(2 Mar 2020) In August 2019, National Library’s Services to Schools conducted a nationwide survey of New Zealand school libraries. This was our second joint survey with SLANZA (School Library Association of New Zealand Aotearoa) and LIANZA (Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa).

The 2019 survey builds on baseline information we gathered in 2018 about the nature of school libraries and school library services. This year’s questions were designed to explore in greater detail two key aspects of school library provision:

  • school library staffing — including employment arrangements, support and continuing professional development, and remuneration
  • school library collections — including information about collection development budgets, format types, and holdings.

Here is the quick summary.
