Indiana School Libraries; A Decade of Progress.
Pillon, Nancy B.; Little, Robert D.
In this document the performance of Indiana school libraries is contrasted to their situation ten years earlier and compared with the national and state standards. The performance statistics were collected from the 1971-72 Individual School Reports of Instructional Media Programs and generally give data for the percent of schools meeting a standard or level. The key areas investigated were administration, including organization and material selection, services, including library hours, professional services, and card catalog entries, and professional collections. Other key areas were facilities (housing of audiovisual materials, seating capacity, and library use areas), equipment (carrels and specialized equipment), and resources (serials and media). In the areas of facilities and resources there was some data given on a per pupil basis. A conclusion summarized the current state and future needs of Indiana school libraries. (WH)
