Design for Progress. A Report of the Workshop in School Library Quarters and Equipment, July 9 to 20, 1962.
Strohecker, Edwin C., Ed.
Significant ideas brought out in the workshop include--(1) that the library is a necessary part of the whole relational structure in education, and (2) that changes in educational programs and methods call for new library planning standards; a library should be able to provide science facilities, audiovisual materials, and a variety of group-work as well as individual research areas. Topics treated in the workshop sessions include interior decoration, floor covering, lighting, furniture and other equipment, sound and thermal control, and the working relation between architect and librarian. The report also includes a review of several workshop discussions, an outline of planning requirements and procedures stemming from the workshop, and a bibliography of related reading. (KK)
