Summary
This study analyzes the course listings of ALA-accredited school librarian training programs and their inclusion of special education training for preservice school librarians. Fewer than a quarter of school librarian training programs require special education training. Of those that do require it, three-quarters require it only for students without a teaching credential. Only two of the recommended or required courses address special education in the school library setting specifically.
