"Drawn from more than 25 sources, mostly federal reports and surveys, this booklet presents a history of federal legislation and national standards affecting school library media centers and key characteristics of school libraries at the national level, from 1953–54 to 1999–2000. This booklet is based on the report Fifty Years of Supporting Children’s Learning: A History of Public School Libraries and Federal Legislation from 1953–2000 (NCES 2005-311)."
Readers can go to the website, and they can download the report for free as a PDF or order a free copy from EdPubs. It may be of interest to those involved with school libraries, but also to those in Library and Information Science. I will be taking a look at it later, and I may post more on it if time allows.
