Organization for Visual Instruction. Bulletin, 1921, No. 7
Dudley, W. H.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The visual instruction section of the division of educational extension of the Bureau of Education has deposited in each of 35 distributing centers throughout the country an average of 113 reels of motion-picture film. In each of these centers these will be at once, or shortly, a part of a motion picture library. The technique of local distribution becomes an important matter for both the distributing center and the user, since with the distributing center at hand and the sources of material becoming richer, success will depend on how well distributer and user cooperate. It is with the hope of being of assistance in this matter that this bulletin is issued. Mr. W. H. Dudley, who has prepared the bulletin, has drawn largely upon his own experience in Wisconsin, where, as chief of the visual instruction bureau of the Extension Division of State university, he has built up a system which has attracted Nation-wide attention. The following contents are included: (1) Educational use of motion pictures; (2) A visual instruction bureau: Organization and operation; (3) A visual instruction service: Fundamental consideration; and (4) Wisconsin plan: A typical bureau of visual instruction.
