School Resource Centres, the Report of the First Year of the Schools Council Resource Centre Project.
Beswick, Norman W.
A resource center is an agency for stimulating the active creation and use of a resource collection, including these six elements: production of home-made resources; selection and acquisition of other resources; classification and indexing for retrieval; storage; use, including guidance, lending, etc.; and evaluation and weeding. It was the charge of this project to identify the various problems which face schools and authorities wishing to develop resource centers, and to determine what have so far been found to be the most suitable and practicable methods of solving them, having regard to a wide variety of existing conditions. Special attention in this report is paid to indexing, storage, and retrieval systems. The report does not attempt to provide a definitive statement on resource centers as there is insufficient British experience in the area. (Author/SJ)
