Creating Elementary and Secondary School Libraries: A Basic Approach.
Woolls, Blanche
This paper presents a method for creating school libraries through the production of materials by the students themselves. Purposes of the project are to promote literacy in elementary and secondary schools through opportunities for students to read and write and to encourage the creation of school libraries where none exists. Teachers are shown how, by using a core reference collection, elementary and secondary students can prepare research reports that can be transformed through the use of electronic desktop publishing into a basic library for the schools. In this way, teachers are encouraged to make research assignments that take the classroom beyond lecture/text instruction, and students are encouraged to expand their information seeking skills. Adding to, maintaining, and distributing the collection are assignments for someone who is knowledgeable, thus identifying the need for school librarians to assist in the resources process and management of resource collections. A list of criteria for establishing a library is appended. (Contains 7 references.) (KRN)
