San Jose State University iSchool's Interactive Map of Requirements for School Librarians Goes Public

Stephen Abram posted the following news from the EveryLibrary Institute on his blog Stephen’s Lighthouse:

The EveryLibrary Institute is excited to provide public access to the San Jose State University iSchool’s interactive map to help researchers and job searchers understand the requirements to become a school librarian in each state. The project also includes data from the SLIDE Project regarding school library/librarian ratios by state and as well as national reading scores for further opportunities to understand relationships between required school librarians, school libraries, etc. and academic achievement. …

We are confident that this visualization will become a resource for prospective and current students, LIS programs, and decision makers to identify their own state’s requirements. Legislators will also have the opportunity to compare across state lines. This platform provides a central repository for visualized state requirements, to contextualize how any one state compares to others, and to provide some preliminary data on any correlations/relationships between having a certified school librarian and a relatively low school library/librarian, student per capita ratio, and student achievement.

For more information, read the blog post.
