Illinois Library Association, Chicago.
This assessment tool is designed for use by administrators, teachers, and school library media specialists to facilitate the development of local standards for school library media programs at both the building and district level. Specific areas discussed include (1) facilities, (2) budget, (3) materials, (4) equipment, (5) personnel, (6) program of services, and (7) inservice programs. The indicators or goals in the evaluation guide focus on quality aspects of the library media program, and identify those observable areas which indicate that a quality program exists. Analysis is done on the basis of scales which measure the degree of acceptance and the degree of implementation given each goal. Included in the appendix are a worksheet for the development of local quantitative standards and worksheets for assessing equipment needs. (Author/BK)
