Ahlers, Eleanor E.
The main objectives of the institute program were to develop in the participants: (1) Knowledge about curriculum changes and emphases, and the impact of educational innovations on the library program, (2) An understanding of the broad field of learning resources that relate to an ever-changing curriculum. (3) Knowledge and skills concerned with the newer educational media and their integration with printed materials into a unified instructional materials program. (4) An awareness of the librarians role in assisting teachers in the selection and effective utilization of learning resources in the instructional program. and (5) An ability to solve the problems of organization and administration in an expanded program of library services that reflect the instructional materials or learning resources concept. Emphasis was placed on the multi-media approach to learning on curriculum content in special subject areas, such as science and mathematics, humanities and social studies, and on the concept of the school library as a learning resources center. The methods used to fulfill these goals are described. The criteria for admission of the participants and short biographical sketches of the staff, and a detailed evaluation of the institute are included. (Author/NH)
