A Resources Centre---Is a State of Mind.
Malcolm, A. H.; And Others
Six resource centers in Scotland are described and discussed to illustrate the varieties of centers which exist, and to promote the development of a system of resource centers throughout the country. Although the precise nature and function of each of the centers varies, contributers to this project elaborate on the reasons for the creation of a particular center, its physical development, the staff and materials available, the problems that are handled, and the needs served within the school context. An extensive bibliography includes sections on the challenge of the new media, phonodiscs and tapes, planning and adapting for a media center, cataloging and classification systems, and guides to software catalogs by subject and institution index.
