The Future of School Library Media Centers.
Kingsbury, Mary E.
Since the future role played by the school library media center is important to library planners, a Delphi survey questioned school librarians, leaders in the profession, and faculty members in schools with media. Four factors were seen to affect the future of the media center: (1) trends within the next 25 years, (2) innovations needing to be introduced in the future, (3) trends rated in terms of desirability and (4) differences in ratings by the three groups. In general, practicing librarians, officers, and professors agree in their assessment of the desirability of each new trend and innovation but stress that library schools will have to provide a more media-oriented course of studies if they are to effectively meet the future deadline presented by this study. Statistical tables are provided. (Author/DS)
