(...) This report provides basic information on school libraries from 1953â€“54 to 1999â€“2000. It describes some of the key variables for which data were available over this nearly 50-year timeframe. While not a comprehensive history of library media centers in this country, the report provides a wealth of information drawn from more than 50 sources, the majority of which are federal surveys and reports. Most of the data in the report have been previously published, but the older reports are not easily accessible to the general public. Data in the tables of this document come from nine federally sponsored reports or databases of national data on school libraries. Only datasets that include national-level data were considered for this compilation. The data come from sample surveys that were self-administered. In addition to school library data, the report presents information about the evolving nature of federal legislation, regional school accreditation standards, and other factors relevant to the establishment,
financial support, and minimum requirements of public school libraries.
