The Organization and Operation of Educational Media Selection Centers: Identification and Analysis of Current Practices and Guidelines for Model Centers. Interim Report Phase I.
Rowell, John; Heidbreder, M. Ann
The aim of this project is to contribute to the development of quality education by improving the selection and use of educational media by students and educators. Questionnaires were used to screen all known facilities in the United States. Of those having one or more aspects of an educational media selection center program, 38 were selected for on-site evaluation by a team of professionals. Reports were analyzed and tabulated, and half the evaluating team members also attended additional group discussion sessions. It was found that very few educational media selection centers exist as originally described. It was recommended that guidelines for such centers be written and disseminated as widely as possible, and also that several model or demonstration centers be established in a variety of administrative patterns across the country. Supplements to the report include tables of data collected and samples of the material used in the survey. (JY)
