Steal This Infographic: Librarians as Tech Leaders


SLJ’s May 2011 cover featured the technology survey.

Librarians are leading the way in technology use, according to School Library Journal’s annual technology survey. It’s been a consistent trend, which SLJ has tracked for several years, documenting how librarians use technology and—more importantly—how that use has enhanced teaching and learning across their schools and districts.

This year, the magazine has visualized the “proof” in a handy infographic, which is freely available for reuse, printing, and posting (in JPEG and PDF formats).

The graphic (below) hits the high points of the 2013 survey­. The full results, with details on the top tools favored by librarians, ebook use, 1:1 programs, filtering and bandwidth issues, and more, are also available for download.
