Intended for school librarians and administrators, this guide provides a broad overview of the content and process of managing a school library. A broad overview of the purpose, historical development, and current activities of school libraries and school librarians is presented. Ensuing chapters address each of the major components of a school library program in greater detail, including the building of a positive climate in the school library; consultation and cooperation between librarians and teachers, administrators, and other staff; public relations and ideas for promoting maximum use of library resources; the production of instructional media; the provision and management of time, personnel, and facilities; the provision and management of library materials; and the assessment and evaluation of school library services. Appendices present an instrument for the self-evaluation of teachers and media specialists, a guide for producing a slide-tape presentation, a materials selection policy for Hawaii's school library media centers, a copy of the Library Bill of Rights, and the 1981 needs assessment packet for the school library. A list of contributors to the guide, a series of bibliographies at the end of most of the chapters, and an index are also provided. (ESR)
