The school library and its staff are significant school assets, and need to be considered as an educational investment rather than a cost. Many teacher librarians provide professional development activities in their schools and beyond. Their combination of expertise in literacy and information skills and knowledge of resources and pedagogy can offer invaluable support to hard-pressed teachers and principals. However, schools across Australia are inadequately staffed in terms of professionally qualified teacher librarians.
