School Libraries and Information Literacy Education in Lithuania
State-of-Art and Survey Findings
Keywords:Lithuania, school library, information literacy education
A self-responding questionnaire (26 items in 3 sections: 1. General information on the school and its library; 2. Information literacy education; 3. The school library role in the school life) was administered in Autumn 2021 to 651 school libraries in Lithuania to investigate how they are organized and positioned, and their role in information literacy education. The main findings show strengths (e.g., opening hours, the school librarian as an information and cultural professional) and weaknesses (e.g., missing PD in Information Literacy). The research provides useful foundations for further investigations and interventions to improve the school library role and profession, as discussed with the President of LMBDA.
