School Library Media Programs; The Combined Approach.
Tolman, Lorraine E., Ed.
In order to provide information about existing school media programs to school people interested in developing their own, the New England School Development Council sent postcards to all New England school superintendents, asking about media centers and unified centers with active programs. The results are presented in two ways. First are some general characteristics of modern media centers such as special atmospheres, flexible space and furniture, a relaxing of boundaries between classroom and media center, use and availability of all kinds of print and nonprint materials, special characteristics of the staff, and the unique educational role of the media center. The second part is a list of existing school media programs, with descriptions, divided into six sections: K-12, elementary, middle, junior high, combined secondary, and senior high programs. (LS)
