school levels. All correlations were significant at p=.001; eight library services had Pearson r
values of greater than .60. Total library services correlated with certificated library staffing levels
at r = .70. At the high school level, in contrast to middle and elementary school, there was a
positive correlation between certificated and clerical staffing levels (r = .40).
In twenty-four of twenty-seven cases, library services correlated more strongly with total
library staffing than with certificated library staffing, and all library services correlated
significantly at p=.001. Three services--total library services, hours open, and total technology--
correlated with total staffing at or near r =.80; nine services correlated at r values greater than
.70. In the correlations between certificated library staff and library services, only total library
services reached an r value.70. See Table 67 for a summary.
