These guidelines and recommendations for library programs and resources focus on goals, programs, and services for state, district, and individual school levels. The Division of Library Development and Services in the State Department of Education develops all public and school library media programs, while the Office of School Media Services, a section of the Division, guides and directs program development throughout the state. The responsibilities of the office include formulating long-range development plans; providing advisory and consultative services to local school systems, in-service education programs, and effective coordination of library media services; developing standards and guidelines, proposals for needed research in library media services, and coordinated plans and policies with other personnel and agencies to strengthen media services. The local school system provides support and leadership for planning, development, analysis, management, and evaluation of library media programs and services at the school system and individual school level. Staff responsibilities at this level are outlined, along with facilities planning, budgeting, materials, and equipment. An outline of the individual school library media program, which serves students, teachers, and administrators, includes categories of service, staff, materials and equipment, and facilities.
