Manpower and Media for the Use of the Minority and the Majority.
Kruse, Edward D.
Although schools are spending huge sums of money (nearly one billion dollars in 1970-71) on instructional technology, their media programs are disorganized and inefficient as documented in the report of the Commission on Instructional Technology. In the speaker's opinion, effective media programs depend on several factors: choice of appropriate materials, scientific organization to allow immediate retrieval of materials, a "memory bank" of successful media usage patterns, and the "humanizing" of the information retrieval process. This can be accomplished by the development of a quality school library program which develops a library media center and provides a good librarian who is the key to successful media usage patterns and the humanizing of information retrieval. Such leadership comes under the heading of accountability. (JK/MT)
