A Guide for Planning and Construction of Public School Facilities in Georgia. Media Center Facilities. Revised.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta.
The purpose of this guide is to facilitate the work of Georgia planners in systematically determining the size, nature, and functions of spaces needed for the construction or renovation of media center facilities after the minimum requirements for school media centers established by the Georgia Board of Education have been met. The first section outlines the planning process for media center construction and contains a planning form and a checklist. The next section, on renovation, presents the media center requirements, then describes the facility by major functions with tasks, design considerations, technical considerations, and furniture and equipment outlined for each function and subfunction. The appendices contain the requirements for installing the electronic distribution system, specifications and sketches for media center furnishings, a checklist for selecting basic furniture, a checklist for media center facility evaluation, a glossary, and a bibliography.
