THE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CENTER--WHOSE EMPIRE.
WYMAN, RAYMOND
GROWTH OF NEW MEDIA PROGRAMS HAS CAUSED A QUESTION AS TO WHETHER THEY BELONG IN THE DOMAIN OF THE LIBRARIAN OR OF THE AUDIOVISUAL SPECIALIST. ONE SOLUTION IS TO COMBINE ALL MEDIA IN A SINGLE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CENTER FROM WHICH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS MAY PROCURE THE MEDIA NEEDED FOR LARGE GROUP PRESENTATION, SMALL GROUP INTERACTION, OR INDIVIDUAL STUDY. TO PROVIDE NECESSARY SERVICES, THREE ELEMENTS ARE NEEDED--(1) A SOFTWARE OR MEDIA LIBRARY THAT INCLUDES BOOKS, FILMS, SLIDES, AND RECORDINGS NEEDED FOR PRESENTATIONS OR INDIVIDUAL STUDY, (2) A HARDWARE OR EQUIPMENT SHOP FOR ACQUIRING, STORING, SERVICING, AND ISSUING EQUIPMENT, AND (3) A PRODUCTION CENTER FOR PREPARATION OF RECORDINGS, FILMS, SLIDES, TRANSPARENCIES, GRAPHICS, BOOKLETS, AND HANDOUT SHEETS. ALTHOUGH MOST OF THIS WORK CAN BE DONE BY NONPROFESSIONAL, TECHNICAL PERSONNEL, THERE IS NEED FOR A PRESENTATION SPECIALIST AND FOR A SPECIALIST IN INDIVIDUAL LEARNING. THESE SPECIALISTS, PLUS TECHNICIANS AND SECRETARIAL HELP, WOULD WORK ON A TEAM DIRECTLY WITH THE TEACHERS. THEY WOULD PROBABLY REPLACE THE PRESENT LIBRARIAN AND AUDIOVISUAL SPECIALIST.
