Early Childhood Library Programming: Measurement and Evaluation. Final Report.
This research and demonstration project was undertaken to study styles and techniques of evaluation which are applicable to early childhood programming in school and public libraries, and to identify during a working conference some methods of measuring outcomes in order to improve and justify library programs for young children. The study report discusses a literature search in librarianship and the related fields of educational sociology, social work, and behavioral psychology; pre-planning for the working conference; the recruitment of participants; proceedings of the conference; and the conference follow-up. Examples of materials used in conference presentations, simulation devices, an analysis of the project, conclusions, a summary, and outcomes are provided, and appendices include a fact sheet, a revised list of staff for the conference, announcements, application and confirmation forms, a list of participants, and the agenda for the working conference.
