Barnett, Stanley A.; And Others
A two week survey was conducted to: (1) investigate the state of developmental book activity in Laos, (2) determine the priority of Laos's book needs, (3) develop program recommendations to meet the needs and (4) formulate regional recommendations. Recommendations on materials and methods needed are: (1) continuation of textbook distribution on a one book per pupil, per subject, per grade basis, (2) revision of primary school textbooks, (3) development and distribution of teachers' manuals, (4) creation of depository textbook libraries, (5) establishment of a central library division, (6) unification of the National Library and National Archives Library, (7) placement of the new National Library near the proposed university to provide a single research collection that can serve both as the National Library and the university general library, (8) expansion of cluster libraries and community reading rooms and (9) development of materials for new readers at all age grade levels.
