Evaluative Criteria for Secondary School Libraries.
Holland, Aurora B.
Because of increased school enrollment and the explosion of knowledge in recent years, adequate secondary school libraries assume great importance in today's educational programs. In order for the library to best serve the student, adequate provisions for the selection of instructional materials and equipment should be provided. Provision should be made for circulating all types of materials for overnight use. Adequate time for library use should be provided all students during the school day; the library should be accessible to them in the evenings and on weekends and holidays. Teachers should cooperate with the librarian in planning library services and should familiarize themselves with resource material holdings in their subject areas. Funds available to purchase audiovisual materials should be used. Microfilming and microreading should be utilized to compensate for limited storage space. No library program can be completely successful without the interest and support of the school board, the principal, the superintendent, the teachers, and the librarian. (BS)
