The School Library Media Center.
Prostano, Emanuel T.; Prostano, Joyce S.
With the aim of providing a realistic, professional approach to solving problems of administration, organization, and operation of the library media center, this textbook has been written for both practicing librarians as well as for students of library science. Included in the nine chapters are: an overview of terminology and the present state of the school library media center; analyses of the media center program in the context of education, personnel, media selection, facilities, equipment, and budget; and an examination of the management and technical support elements of the media system. In addition, media guidance and consultant services are discussed. The use of professional administrative tools for planning facilities and media programs, analyzing staff requirements, and understanding programed budgeting are emphasized. (MC)
