Leadership for the 90's. Final Report of the State Superintendent's Task Force on School Library Media Issues. Bulletin No. 91095.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. of Library Services.
A task force on school library media issues was appointed in Wisconsin to describe the current program status in the state; identify those factors that are preventing the fulfillment of the library media program's mission--that every student in public elementary and secondary schools in Wisconsin has a right to a comprehensive program of library media services--and make recommendations for state action. The task force identified eight major issues that play an integral role in the school library media program. Each issue is addressed in a separate chapter: (1) library media program philosophy; (2) library media specialist as curriculum partner; (3) library media education and staff development; (4) library media program staffing; (5) library media programs and technology; (6) library media facilities; (7) library media collections and resources; and (8) library media financing and budgeting. Each chapter includes background information, an analysis of library media center needs related to that issue, and recommendations. Five appendixes contain the guidelines for personnel, staffing ranges based on program philosophy, school library media expenditures, per pupil expenditures for instructional media, and anticipated expenditures for 1989-90.
