Resource Services for Nanaimo Schools. Curriculum Resource Centre and Library Services: Report of the Evaluation Team.
Nanaimo School District #68 (British Columbia).
An evaluation of the Curriculum Resource Centre (CRC)-Library Services for the Nanaimo (British Columbia) School District is presented in this report, which is based on surveys, interviews, observations, tours, discussions, readings, and meetings conducted by the team members during the course of the study. The evaluation team consisted of two teachers, two administrators, and two external reviewers. This final report presents the process framework, a historical review of CRC and Library Services, and 38 recommendations with supporting rationale. The recommendations address five areas of concern: (1) the integration of library services and the CRC; (2) the upgrading of the collection at the CRC with an up-to-date organized catalog; (3) the need for increased clerical support staff in library services and the CRC; (4) the development of a fully coordinated library program (K-12); and (5) the upgrading of school library collections, particularly in schools that have changed focus. The 13 appendixes provide supporting materials and data, including copies of two questionnaires used to gather data. (5 references) (EW)
