This article issues from a doctoral research journey concerned with the design of school libraries. It is a point-in-time opportunity to explore, raise questions and invite conversation. On an earlier 20+ year journey the writer worked as a teacher-librarian and school library consultant with Brisbane Catholic Education and co-principal researcher with QUT colleagues in the ‘Performing hybridity’ study (2000-1). The study recognised the potential for school library culture to influence the school community. The writer’s professional roles and research experiences provoked questions about school libraries as learning spaces.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
