Information Power for Washington: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs. Revised.
These guidelines provide basic information to administrators, teachers, library media specialists and the general public for the evaluation of library media programs at the school and district level. They can also be used as a resource for establishing, developing and improving programs as well as for setting goals and objectives for the program and its personnel. Guidelines are presented in the following areas: (1) School Library Media Programs; (2) Instruction and Services; (3) Staff; (4) Resources and Budget; (5) Facilities; (6) Support for School Library Media Programs; and (7) Library Media Program Evaluation. Four appendices present the minimum standards for integrating school district library and media services into learning resource centers; the subject area endorsement recommendations by colleges and universities; the results of the 1990 survey of Washington school libraries, including data on school size, staff numbers, expenditures, facilities, and collections; and three national professional organization documents (i.e., Library Bill of Rights from the American Library Association, an interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights, and a statement on intellectual freedom by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology).
