Implementing a System to Permanently Disseminate Infrequently Used Circulating Media from a District Instructional Materials Center.
Reedy, Melvin E.
A plan was developed and implemented for the removal of 20,877 filmstrips from the central Audiovisual Library of the Dallas Texas Independent School District and their equitable dissemination into individual school media centers within the district. Precipitated by a continuing decline in the annual filmstrip circulation within a six year period, the procedures incorporated in the decentralization plan answered the question of what to do with media that are impractical to circulate from a central library in terms of economics and utilization. The project was financed by an existing budget and carried out by existing personnel. A general outline of the plan is included for use in future considerations of reassigning inappropriately housed media. Appendices contain statistical data on filmstrip circulation and equipment, decentralization expenditures, school media center responses, and several forms utilized during the procedure. (Author/MBR)
