Conclusions of a study of current use of technology in the administration of school library media programs and in school library/public library cooperation are summarized. Based on interviews with media specialists in nine states and an extensive literature review, 26 trends in technology utilization are listed for the administrative categories of technical services, scheduling, circulation, security systems, information retrieval, and other. Then, 23 recommendations are suggested for use in future planning by school administrators and library media specialists in initiating, increasing, and expanding their management functions in administering school library/media centers and programs. These recommendations also address the topic of budgeting and include one recommendation for state education agency personnel and professional associations. (LMM)
