Please pardon the cross-posting. The following new titles are available for interlibrary loan (ILL) from the Oregon State Library. For those advocating on behalf of strong school libraries, I thought you might be interested in School Libraries Matter: Views from the Research. It’s the third entry below. Also, the book about centers in the library might be useful. It’s the last entry.
