The Resource Centre at Madeley Court School, Salop: A Study of its Organisation and Operation.
Waite, Charlotte E.
The library resource center of a new school in Wales is described and evaluated. First there is an overview of the school itself: social environment, school aims, organization, individual and independent work, staffing, and growth of the school. Then various facets of the resource center are discussed: aims, design and layout; departmental resource collections; staffing; finance; audio services; material acquisition, selection, and retrieval; and relationships with outside agencies. Library and resource use is also considered along with supervision and individual learning and resources. The conclusion deals with the school's rapidly growing population, its continued expansion, the experimental nature of some of its programs, and problems of designing an innovative resource center. Recommendations are made regarding use of the center, training of staff and students, center staffing, better funding, and greater use of the county library's resources. Plans, illustrations, and a language arts unit are included. (LS)
