Facilities for School Library Media Programs.
DuMond, Ernest G.; Meffert, Benjamin F.
Elementary and secondary school programs have been and still are undergoing changes that will influence facilities design for the schools of the 1970's. The program of the school library media center is certainly also being affected by these changes. A flexible approach is warranted in locating the media center within the school. Students and teachers respond affirmatively to a humane environment that respects their individuality and pleases their senses. The arrangement of furniture and equipment in a library media center should permit users to move about freely without disturbing others. The center should be an attractive facility allowing a wide variety of activities to take place simultaneously. These various activities require areas designed for the following functions: study, large-group instruction, offices for media personnel, work areas for technical processing and the media equipment, faculty study and meetings, production, and storage. Recommendations for each of these areas, a floor plan, and recommended collection sizes are included. (Author/SJ)
