Operating Learning Resource Centers: A Manual.
Piercy, David R.
Intended for regular and special education administrators (as well as support personnel), the manual is designed to assist regional and local learning resource centers (LRCs) in developing and implementing their programs with a minimum of outside assistance. The document is divided into five major sections representing broad subject areas in which LRCs might operate: planning and evaluation, management, appraisal and programing, materials support, and personnel support. The five major sections are each divided into 15 functions, with "function" being defined as a role which might be performed by the organization. Each function, in turn, is divided into strategies ("strategy" defined as a recommended behavioral event required to perform the roles or functions). Each of these strategies is then divided into a number of tasks or activities for implementing the strategies. Finally, each task is divided into two suggested mechanisms for its accomplishment--considerations and step-by-step procedures. Step-by-step procedures provide an approach to the task, detailing the basic steps necessary for completion. Covered are the following functions: defining workscope, assessing needs, evaluating LRCs, planning, managing LRC, supervising personnel, managing physical resources, managing fiscal resources, coordinating appraisal services, delivering appraisal services, developing and evaluating materials, selecting and circulating materials, offering inservice training, delivering technical assistance, and providing information.
