Abstract

This research study was an attempt to answer the question: Do English and social science students; English and school library media specialist students; and social science and school library media specialist students possess similar perceptions of the role of the school library media specialist?

To answer this question, a role norm inventory consisting of seven parts, each representing one of seven role segments was admini­stered. Responses were made on a Likert-type scale by sample groups at the University of Northern Iowa. An analysis of variance was used to determine the significant differences with the .05 level of proba­bility set for the rejection of the hypotheses

Statistically significant differences in perception were found between school library media specialist students and English majors and school media specialist students and social science majors on all seven role segments. Between English and social science students a statisti­cally significant difference was discovered on only one role segment, "participator in extramural activities."
