Facts about Maryland's School Library Media Programs, 1982-83.
Presberry, Rosa L., Comp.; And Others
Designed to assist local officials in examining their library media collections and staff according to the recommendations in the Criteria for Modern School Library Media Programs, this factbook lists statistical data on school library media programs in the state of Maryland. The entries are arranged alphabetically by local educational agency name (i.e., city or county school district name) and each entry contains three tables: (1) data on school library media collections; (2) data on the number and percentage of items by school for meeting state criteria for school library media collections; and (3) data on the number of schools meeting state criteria for the staffing of school library media centers. State totals are presented for System Level Professional Library Media Centers in four areas: system level grand total collections, system level print collections, system level nonprint collections, and system level library media center professional and support personnel. The costs of textbooks and library resources are noted. For nonpublic schools, data on each school's library media center collection is listed, and they are arranged by local educational agency.
