CHAIRMAN (Ms Bird) —I declare open this, the 11th, public hearing of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Education and Training as part of its inquiry into school libraries and teacher librarians in Australian schools. This inquiry was referred to the committee by the then Minister for Education, the Hon. Julia Gillard MP. To date, the committee has received 382 submissions from interested stakeholders both in Australia and overseas. Submissions are available from the committee’s website. Before introducing the witnesses, I refer members of the media who may be present at this hearing to the need to fairly and accurately report the proceedings of the committee.
