Planning School Library Quarters.
Johnson, Frances Kennon; Bomar, Cora Paul
ALA Bulletin, Feb 1964
Several articles are directed to basic considerations in planning school library quarters. The role of the librarian and staff members is discussed with regard to defining the program and its physical requirements. The function of the architect and the means and steps by which he arrives at solutions to design problems are examined, and suggestions are presented for preparing educational specifications for the school library. Some principles and features of good design are illustrated in the case studies of recently constructed elementary and secondary school libraries and diagramatic floor plans are included. Educational technology and various trends in education are discussed with regard to implications for planning school libraries. A short annotated bibliography concerned with planning school library quarters includes books, pamphlets, articles and films. (FS)
