After World War II the development of school libraries in Japan has been rather prominent. However, when one tries to make an objective analysis of the development during this period it becomes apparent that a functional integration of school library services into the total school education process has never been wholly realized, nor has it reached as yet a satisfactory stage; further, it may be seen that many Japanese school libraries have available very impressive modern facilities.
This self-contradictory phenomenon has been caused by such problems as: the changing pattern of school education; the slight effect of such a change on the traditional ways and means of teacher training; governmental administration of school libraries; the quality of teacher-librarians and their preparation; etc.
