A panel of members from the Special School Library Commission formed by the Massachusetts Legislature reveals responses from over 700 school librarians to a 2015 statewide survey about access in their schools to library staffing, facilities, information resources, technology, funding, and instruction. Join the conversation  in an audience-friendly panel discussion as members of the Commission and MSLA talk with the researchers, Dr. Carol Gordon and Dr.. Robin Cicchetti, to find out what they learned and what they are recommending to the State Legislature.
