Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for Implementation of Media Programs in Disadvantaged Areas.
Ball State Univ., Muncie, IN.
This self-contained Institute was designed to provide elementary and high school librarians from disadvantaged areas, whether inner-city or rural, with an opportunity to study current practices and to develop solutions for operating their libraries as media centers, working with their community, and cooperating with existing public libraries. The thirty participants had an opportunity to evaluate large amounts of media and were exposed to many varieties of media. Through the use of video recordings and individual conferences, emphasis was placed upon developing techniques for working with students, teachers, community leaders, etc. Of extreme importance was the development of procedures for interpersonal contacts which affect the success of the school media program.
