Innovations in School Librarianship; Papers Presented at an Institute (Tallahassee, Florida; July 24-August 4, 1972).
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.; Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.
The institute, "Innovations in School Librarianship," was conducted by The Florida State University in cooperation with the Florida Department of Education. Participants in the workshop were persons employed as school district level media personnel in Florida public school systems. The purpose was to increase their competence in planning, developing and evaluating effective system-wide media programs. The need for such competence has been sharply accentuated by recent state legislative actions and subsequent policy changes by the Department of Education which mandated an appraisal of all programs as to effectiveness, efficiency, and utilization of resources. The seminar approach was used, enabling participants to exchange views and reinforce principles. Emphasis was placed on the development of evaluative instruments, implementation of standards, procedures to assure accountability, and on the design of needs assessment as they relate to school media programs. Presentations to the entire group was made by staff members and visiting lecturers in order to impart information needed by all of the participants. This document is a record of those presentations.
