Dr Margaret Merga, in partnership with ASLA, has been successful in obtaining funding from BUPA to undergo a ground-breaking research project entitled:  School libraries promoting wellbeing in Australian primary and secondary schools: An exploratory study. 

This study will provide research-based evidence for the important role that school libraries and school library staff play in promoting positive mental health in schools across Australia.
