Student Library Resource Requirements in Philadelphia. Evaluation Report, Phase IV, June 15, 1971 - June 30, 1972.
Benford, John Q.
Phase IV of the Student Library Resource Requirements Project had as its two main purposes: (1) the establishment of a student learning center demonstration, with the collaboration of school and public library organizations and to begin its operation and evaluation and (2) to expand the well-established interagency planning mechanism into other areas of high priority need. The project developed a set of 73 product, process, and management objectives. The major areas of change dealt with in the product objectives are: improvement of students' reading skills; improvement of students' attitudes toward libraries and library materials; improvement of work-study skills; and increase of their knowledge about their community and city, about current events, and black history and culture. During this period of operation the evaluation concentrated on process and management objectives. The major sources of data were project records, on-site visits, and interviews with project personnel. Forms were designed for the recording of attendance statistics, circulation statistics, and dissemination of information. (Other documents about this project are: ED 057830-057831, 060884, 060885, and LI 003958 and LI 003960.) (Author/NH)
