Evolving a Model Learning Resource Center for a Developing Country (Zambia).
Patel, Jasubhai J.
For a developing nation such as Zambia, quality education, utilization of manpower, and proper training are priority problems. Therefore a study was conducted to establish and document the need for a well-planned, staffed and executed learning resource center to solve some of that country's learning problems. Basic facts about the country of Zambia were collected. A review of the literature and a survey of learning resources center organization and development in developed countries was conducted. Based on the identified needs of the country of Zambia, a basic philosophy gathered from the literature, and the experiences of developed countries, a detailed plan for a phased program to establish a learning resource center for Zambia was prepared. Recommendations included means of developing a philosophic base, purpose, organizational structure, plan, program, personnel, physical facilities, and time line of events. A bibliography is appended.
