The report of the Texas Study, "Texas School Libraries: Standards Resources, Services and Students' Performance", is now available. The study had three objectives. (1) Examine school library resources, services, and use, on the basis of the School Library Programs: Standards and Guidelines for Texas and determine the need for updating these standards and guidelines so that they better serve communities across the State. (2) Determine the impact that school libraries have on student performance as measured by the percent of students who met minimum expectations on the reading portion of the statewide standardized test, the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS). (3) Highlight library practices in the best performing schools.
