Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for Training in Librarianship...June 8, 1970 to July 17, 1970.
South Carolina State Coll., Orangeburg.
The "Standardization for School Media Programs" were thoroughly interpreted, and all aspects of the problems involved in their implementation were explored. The multifaceted role of the media center in relation to such educational trends as publicly supported kindergartens, increased emphasis on individualized instruction and independent study, and recognition of the unique needs of the culturally and educationally deprived were interpreted. Pertinent research and case studies of emerging and exemplary media centers were reviewed. Emphasis was placed on the multimedia approach in teaching and learning. The role of media in intergroup relations and the responsibility, as media specialists, of including and promoting materials by and about minority groups in media center collections was stressed. The participants were also introduced to some of the implications and applications of automation. The staff and the thirty participants concur that the objectives of the Institute were achieved. (MF)
