The school library workforce in Australia

ALIA 2016 National Conference, 29 August-2 September 2016, Melbourne: engage, create, lead.
 
This paper engages with the issue, raised by Lonsdale in 2003, of a lack of data regarding national staffing trends in Australian school libraries.

Particular focus is given to the Staff in Australian Schools survey, as well as its limitations.
