Understanding the process underlying the act of studying in schools has vexed teachers for many years in their quest for ideal teaching methods to help young learners reach educational goals. One strand of studying is the ability to use library resources effectively -to use the recorded achievements of others in the pursuit of learning and the acquisition of the skills for learning. The methods used to train schoolchildren in the use of libraries and their resources, whilst themselves up-to-date in pedagogical terms, failed to achieve the standards articulated by institutions of higher and further education. Successive reports on how students handled library tasks suggested that schools should share the responsibility by introducing aspects of library use during school days so that those who went on to extend their education could make full use of the enriched library environment available there.
