A Comparative Study of Open Space and Self-Contained Elementary School Library-Media Centers.
Leeper, Dennis P.
This paper summarizes the results of a study comparing the usage, expenditures, services, collections, and staffing of elementary school library media centers by type of structural design, i.e., either open space or self contained classroom type. It suggests that school personnel, particularly the principal and library media specialist, rather than school size or type of physical facilities, are the most important variables in determining the quality and quantity of elementary school media center use. Twenty-four open space and twenty-four self contained randomly selected elementary schools located within nine school districts in north central Colorado constitute the experimental sample. (STS)
