Hale, Robert G.; And Others
This document presents guidelines for establishing, modifying, and building library media programs which effectively meet the needs of students. It is divided into five sections: (1) The Process of Program Development, which discusses planning a library media program and its relationship to curriclum development; (2) The School Library Media Program, which describes curriculum support, a taxonomy of library media activities, and library media skills instruction; (3) Learning Resources, which discusses print, nonprint, and mixed media collections as well as space and equipment requirements; (4) Program Management, which looks at district-level and school-level management, staffing requirements, and fiscal considerations; and (5) Moving into the Future, which briefly discusses the increasing use of computer and related technologies in schools. Tables provide lists of library media skills, competencies related to grade level, media center specifications for large and small schools, auxiliary facility requirements, and media equipment needs. Appendices include various items of legislation, policy statements, and sample forms and procedures related to school library media programs as well as an 11-item bibliography. (ESR)
