A SYNTHESIS OF RESEARCH PERTAINING TO SCHOOL BUILDINGS CONDUCTED BY EDUCATORS AND ARCHITECTS.
NORTH, STEWART D.; AND OTHERS
THE FIELD OF SCHOOL PLANT PLANNING RESEARCH WAS SURVEYED TO DETERMINE THE SOURCES OF RESEARCH MATERIALS. THE SOURCES INCLUDED (1) DOCTORAL DISSERTATIONS, (2) LIBRARIES AND COLLECTIONS, AND (3) PERIODICAL LITERATURE. THE STUDY FOCUSED ON SCHOOL FACILITIES AS THEY RELATE TO THE LEARNING PROCESS. SINCE LIBRARY COLLECTIONS WERE FOUND INADEQUATE, IT WAS DECIDED TO SEARCH PERIODICAL LITERATURE AND DISSERTATION ABSTRACTS. PERIODICAL ARTICLES LISTED IN THE "EDUCATION INDEX" AND THE "ART INDEX" WERE SURVEYED. ALL ARTICLES SELECTED WERE COMBINED INTO AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 2,188 ENTRIES. THE LITERATURE WAS SORTED, REPORTED FOR EACH DISCIPLINE, AND DISPLAYED ON A BAR GRAPH. THERE WAS A TREND FOR SCHOOL PLANT ARCHITECTS TO WRITE ARTICLES FOR EDUCATIONAL PERIODICALS. ONE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS WAS THAT MORE DISSERTATIONS AND GRADUATE DESIGN PROJECTS BE PUBLISHED IN PROFESSIONAL JOURNALS OF BOTH FIELDS. (RS)
