Instructional Materials Centers; Selected Readings.
Pearson, Neville P.; Butler, Lucius
Revolutionary innovation in the traditional school library has produced "the media center", where--in addition to books--films, television, tapes, and multimedia displays are available to increase student learning. This book represents a collection of eighty-three articles from library journals dealing with library science in its modern form. The philosophy of the instructional materials center, or IMC, discussed in the first section, is that combining the available specialized services will enable the teacher or librarian to maximize the student's educational environment, and thereby maximize his learning. The librarian must become an information retrieval and dissemination expert. Subsequent sections of the book deal with the particular problems of the IMC in the elementary school, the secondary school, and the college and university. Final sections deal with the specifics of operation of an IMC--equipment, personnel, and evaluation of performance. (BB)
