Media Center Facility Design for Maryland Schools.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Library Development and Services.
To develop a set of guidelines for planning media facilities for Maryland schools, a 10 member state-appointed committee studied media-center design from the vantage points of local agencies, state media organizations, the State Department of Education, public libraries, and construction planners. A set of flexible guidelines for new or renovated centers developed by the committee is presented here. Steps are outlined for assessing the needs and objectives, and a checklist and timetable of planning procedures is provided. Space and design considerations are explained, including minimum space allocation and a checklist of suggested furnishings. The responsibilities of the media supervisor, the building specialist, and the architect in drafting the final plans are listed. A glossary of terms and a bibliography are included. (SK)
