Abstract

This session was designed to help teacher-librarian participants answer the questions, “Why might I consider doing a PhD program? What opportunities might it open for me?” The School Library Research SIG designed the session to help participants learn about opportunities for doctoral studies that prepare teacher-librarians for work in the academy and in school districts and government departments. Three panel presenters described various doctoral programs and related professional development opportunities in school librarianship. After the panel presentations, several faculty advisors provided information and advice for participants in a “speed-mentoring” session.
