School Library Media Services Evaluated: A Sample Instrument.
Christine, Emma Ruth
With today's demands for accountability, some new methods should be evolved for evaluating the services given by the school library media center. Since circulation counts, head counts, and similar statistics have provided only an approximation of the real services provided, an opinionnaire was devised to survey the faculty about library use, quality of materials and services, and the role of the resource teacher. An analysis of the data from the survey showed: (1) the resource center (RC) as "firmly entrenched in the teaching methodology of a majority of the faculty reporting", (2) a desire for further acquisition of books and periodicals, (3) a need for more staff, (4) a desire for new or reinstated services, and (5) a low priority for "maintaining order in the RC." The anonymity of the survey also provided an opportunity for faculty to express some criticisms, which were helpful to the resource teacher. A sample of the opinionnaire is included. (LS)
