Performance Guidelines for Planning Community Resource Centers.
Eberhard, John P.; And Others
Planning guidelines for community resource centers (CRCs) are introduced by an overview of current thought and existing programs in education, information, library, communication, and social services. Criteria for locating and housing a CRC are discussed. User diagrams, space diagrams, and performance guidelines are provided for ten services which may be parts of a CRC. These include programs for preschool age, school age, and adult learners; public attractions; sociocultural activities; lending services; information and referral; group interaction; leisure browsing; and community media. Brief narratives are accompanied by illustrations, charts, and diagrams. Appendixes contain a summary of varying user needs based on user characteristics, a furnishings and equipment checklist, a physical facilities checklist, and information sources. (LS)
