This seems to be a good idea, Anette! Interesting questions. Hope some will take the time to answer.

 Dear friends,
 
 
 
 I can send these questions
 to the mailinglist
 for Swedish school librarians. Would that be a good
 idea?
 
 
 
 Best regards

 Dear friends and
 colleagues,
 
  
 
 On 21 January 2016 I
 circulated
 a request from Dr. Patrick Lo, Associate Professor at the
 Faculty of Library
 and Information Science at the University of Tsukuba in
 Japan.  Thank
 you to those of you who replied to Dr. Lo directly.
  
 
  
 
 Dr. Lo has now
 compiled a list
 of more detailed questions, as follows:  
 
  
 1.
 Self-introduction,
 professional and educational backgrounds. What did you study
 at university?
 For example, are you are second-career school librarian?
 Meaning did you
 have other careers before becoming a school
 librarian?
 
  
 
 2.
 Choosing
 a career in school librarianship – was it an active
 choice out of personal
 interest? Or it was by chance and circumstance?
 
  
 
 3.
 Are you
 currently working as a solo librarian in the whole
 school?
 
  
 
 4.
 Could
 you describe your
 typical day at work as a school librarian?
 
  
 
 5.
 Do you
 need to take up
 any classroom teaching duties, in addition to fulfilling
 your roles as
 a school librarian?
 
  
 
 6.
 As a school
 librarian in your region – is there a nation-wide or
 region-wide syllabus
 or curriculum that you need to follow, in terms of
 performing your work
 as a school librarian? If not, do you think it is feasible
 to implement
 a region-wide syllabus for school librarians? The absence of
 such as syllabus
 – do you think it is an advantage or
 disadvantage?
 
  
 
 7.
 What are
 the expectations amongst your students, other classroom
 teachers and the
 senior management in the school library and in you –
 in the context of
 supporting the overall learning and teaching, as well as the
 development
 of other recreational activities of the whole
 school?
 
  
 
 8.
 Please
 give a list of successful library programmes (supporting
 students’ over
 all learning and teaching of other teaching staff) initiated
 by you as
 a school librarian?
 
  
 
 9.
 What are
 the major challenges and difficulties faced by you as a
 school librarian?
 
  
 
 10.
 Which parts
 of your job as a school librarian did you find most
 rewarding?
 
  
 
 11.
 The professional
 knowledge, skills, roles and other job-related competencies
 for a school
 librarian - have they undergone major changes in your region
 in the last
 5 to 10 years? In your opinion, what is the future for
 school librarians
 in your region?
 
  
 
 Please note that this
 is an attempt
 by Dr. Lo to gather international information
 from school
 librarians who work in school libraries which exist under
 many different
 circumstances  in developing, emerging and developed
 countries, at
 many different levels.  He would really appreciate it
 if you would
 help him by answering these questions.  Please
 circulate the questions
 to other colleagues whenever possible.  Replies should
 be sent to
 Dr. Lo at <[log in to unmask]>
 .
 
  
 
 This is important
 research which
 will broaden our knowledge of school librarianship
 throughout the world.
  I have asked Dr. Lo whether or not it would be
 possible to contain
 the questions in an online survey (which may save some
 time), however he
 has replied that he is placing emphasis on interviews with
 open-ended questions
 which would provide greater insight.  
 
  
 
 Many of you have very
 busy jobs
 and do not have a lot of time to answer survey questions,
 however I would
 like to add my personal request to you to try to help Dr. Lo
 as much as
 possible.  
 
  
 
 Below is a copy of the
 original
 message which I circulated on Dr. Lo’s behalf on 21
 January 2016: 
 
 
 
 Dear friends and colleagues,
 
 
 
 Our colleague Dr. Patrick Lo has asked me to post the
 following message:
 
 
 
 Dear All,
 
 My name is Dr. Patrick LO. I am currently serving as
 Associate Professor
 at the Faculty of Library and Information Science at the
 University of
 Tsukuba in Japan. My research partners and I are now doing a
 book entitled:
 "Conversations with Successful School Librarians
 Worldwide".
 This book is based on a series of interviews with individual
 practicing
 school librarians - to serve as a platform for them to share
 their individual
 insights into their current profession, successful practices
 and most importantly
 successful stories. Please let me know if this book would be
 of interest
 to you and your colleagues or students. We are trying to
 estimate the potential
 market. If we publish the book in English - featuring
 practicing school
 librarians in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand
 and other countries
 - how many people in your regions (e.g. school librarians,
 schools, MLIS
 students or MLIS faculty staff) would be interested in
 purchasing this
 book? Your information would be much appreciated. Thanks,
 Patrick LO.
 
 
 
 
 
 Thank you in advance
 for your help.
 
  
 
 With kind
 regards,
 
  
 
 Helen Boelens.
