Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the selected characteristics of schools and school libraries that affect or influence the level of library service in the secondary schools of Newfoundland and Labrador. A questionnaire was constructed and forwarded to a representative sample of High Schools across Newfoundland and Labrador. The data compiled from the questionnaire were subjected to the multiple regression analysis to determine if a significant relationship existed between the independent and the dependent variables. The testing of the hypotheses revealed that two selected characteristics of schools and school libraries significantly influenced library service. The study concluded that the attitude of the principal is a significant factor affecting the total library service as well as its various components and that the attitude of the teaching staff is a significant factor influencing information services.
