A New Media Center.
Halliday, Meta A.
A new media center is planned for a K-8 Department of Defense Dependents School (DoDDS) with approximately 850 students in Heilbronn, West Germany. Heilbronn has a U.S. Army community with the majority of the students being military dependents. The faculty and administration are made up of educators from all over the United States. Although at the time of publication no budget had been set for the project, this plan to complete the media center includes: (1) an introduction to the project; (2) a description of the optimal planning strategy for building a media center; (3) specifications for furniture and audiovisual equipment; (4) a basic guide to subjects that should be covered in any collection which is presented in the format of the Dewey Decimal System; (5) lists of suggested media center, audiovisual, and microcomputer supplies; and (6) an annotated bibliography which includes 24 references on planning, 20 on acquisitions, and six on automation.
