Abstract — Understanding teacher and school librarian collaboration is essential for school librarians to be able to comply with professional school librarian guidelines. While information exists about what school librarians perceive teacher and school librarian collaboration to be, little is understood about teachers’ perceptions of collaborative endeavors with school librarians. This study examines teachers’ perceptions of teacher and school librarian collaboration. The study surveyed 194 elementary school teachers in two school districts to determine how frequently teachers engaged in collaborative endeavors and how important to student learning teachers’ perceived the collaborative endeavors to be. A 16 item self-administered survey was used for data collection.
