Abstract

In 2023, academics from the School of Information and Communication Studies at Charles Sturt University completed a two-stage project documenting the published output related to Australian and New Zealand school libraries and teacher librarianship from 1900 to the present. The resultant output of the project was the Knowledge Bank of Australian and New Zealand School Libraries. This article discusses a preliminary analysis of the Australian corpus recorded in the Knowledge Bank and what the evidence provided in the corpus can tell us about the history, development and intellectual output associated with teacher librarianship and school libraries in Australia over time. This insight provides opportunities for further research and a broader understanding of the contribution of this sector to both education and librarianship internationally.
