Tracking Instructional Materials from Acquisition to Use. A Qualitative Model for Evaluating the Use of School Library Resources.
Bowie, Laura; Walker, Cornelia
This project report describes the development and implementation of a model of qualitative measures for evaluating the use of school library resources by students and teachers. It explains a record-keeping system for school librarians to use in tracing media from purchase, through processing, to eventual utilization. Using parts of sample recordkeeping forms as illustrations, specific procedures are discussed for the model's three primary steps: (1) teachers select materials; (2) librarian receives and disseminates materials; and (3) teachers and students use materials. The report then addresses additional questions posed by the study, summarizes the project activities for 1980 through 1982, and presents a month-by-month project implementation plan. Sample recordkeeping forms are included for library requests, material evaluation, teacher-librarian planning, and teacher and student use of library resources. The final section displays the project evaluation data. (LMM)
