Report on Phase I - School Library Programs in Schools for the Deaf.
Cory, Patricia Blair
To describe provisions for school library services in schools for the deaf, 17 public residential, five private residential, and eight public day schools were selected for on-site visits. An interview checklist was constructed and used at each school. The lack of library personnel, the use of untrained and trained personnel, the provision and quality of quarters and equipment, expenditures, the quality and quantity of book collections and the quantity of visual materials, and the status of the library program are discussed. Recommendations are made for standards, including personnel qualifications, supportive staff, and class load, quarters (with sample floor plans), equipment, expenditures for printed materials, size of book collections, and guidelines for programs.
