Abstract:
Japanese school libraries have had issues and conflicts over their specialists for over 50 years. LIPER-SL sets a new hypothetical model of "The Information Specialist for School". A series of research examined the possibilities of this new professional and identified the gap between the ideal and reality. The present situation was analyzed through a national questionnaire followed by a focus group interview. The missions and functions of "The Information Specialist for School" were defined at the end of this research.
