The purpose of this study is to investigate school library utilization, focusing on how to effectively use a school library in curriculum management. The study methods employed are （1） literature search and （2） interviews. My analyses focus on the role of the teacher-librarian in curriculum design. Even though library staff may wish to be involved in development of the curriculum, their daily duties hinder their engagement in curriculum management. Therefore, the goal of this study is to clearly identify the extent to which they can carry out curriculum management and how librarians who become active in matters related to curricula are regarded by their colleagues. The investigation was made to determine the status and positioning of the teacher-librarian and where they fit into the interrelationship among the principal, teachers and students.
