A survey of Administrative-Organizational Patterns of Non-print Media Programs in Academic Libraries in Tennessee.
Fuller, Florine Smith
An investigation to determine the administrative and organizational role of the library in nonprint media programs in institutions of higher education in Tennessee was carried out using the survey and interview method. The findings showed that one-third of the responding libraries did not have and were not planning a comprehensive collection of nonprint materials with compatible equipment. More than half the respondents indicated that their institutions have or are planning curriculum laboratories, but only half will be under the administration of the library. Of those having or planning a centralized audiovisual equipment distribution center, 70 percent indicated that the administration of it will be under the library. The lack of trained personnel to process and organize nonprint materials housed outside the confines of the library or the multipurpose facility was widely reported. (HAB)
