ABSTRACT
This paper analyzes the correlation between the type of training received by librarians, their leadership efficacy and their involvement in the life of the school, and patterns of teacher-librarian collaboration (TLC) in Israel. The study was based on 291 questionnaires answered by school librarians, teachers, and principals of public schools in Israel. The research findings indicate that leadership ability is predictive of an advanced pattern of teacher-librarian collaboration (TLC). Similarly, the perceived level of advanced cooperation was lower among librarians who do not have a teaching license, than for either teacher-librarians or librarians with a teaching license who work only in the library. The teacher-librarians were perceived to have the highest level of pedagogical and social involvement, and therefore the chances that they will maintain an advanced pattern of TLC are the higher.
