The Setting Up of a Resources Centre. 1: Basic Ideas.
Malcolm, Adam H.
This guidebook reviews the basic educational role of learning resources centers in elementary-secondary education, and outlines the facility requirements, material requirements, and functions of a basic resources center. The educational issues surrounding the development of resources centers are briefly addressed, including resource-based education, discovery learning, curriculum planning, and the relationship between traditional school libraries and learning resources centers. The physical accommodations required by resources centers, the storage and handling of equipment and materials, equipment distribution and use, the registration and cataloging of resources and equipment, and the provision of reprographic services by resources centers are then discussed in detail. A suggested list of abbreviations for cataloging of non-book items, a suggested form for descriptive cataloging of materials, and a suggested layout for an equipment control card are appended. (JL)
