School Libraries in Quebec.
This paper briefly reviews the development and current problems of school libraries in Quebec with emphasis on trends since 1960. The provisions of the 1960 "Code Scolaire" for school libraries are outlined (in French). Also listed (in French) are recommendations concerned with school libraries from "Le Rapport Parent," a mid-1960's report calling for improvements in Quebec's educational system. School library funding and staffing limitations in the 1980's are described, and it is noted that library schools in Quebec give little emphasis to the training of school librarians. A final section lists (in French) 16 conclusions from the 1981 Jomphe Report, which outlined the underdeveloped state of Quebec's school libraries. (ESR)
