Education Inside the Library-Media Center.
Hostrop, Richard W.
A review of the role of libraries from the time of Aristotle to the present is offered first, followed by a discussion of the foundation upon which the modern learning center rests. Subsequent chapters explore the teaching-learning role of the merged print/nonprint center, beginning with the elementary school and concluding with the university. The book concludes with reviews of the Library-College concept and of the future of Library-Media Centers (LMC). Present-day practices at all levels are described and the relationship between effective teaching and the use of media materials is explored. Circulation and cost statistics are scrutinized and the effects of television and access to automobiles on student usage of library materials are reported for the first time. Finally, analyses of findings from several studies are made and used to suggest LMC changes which will maximize their effectiveness. (Author)
