1963: The school library materials center: its resources and their utilization

 

Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no.10, 1963); Edited by Alice Lohrer

In the relatively short history of school library development, each decade since 1920 could be characterized as centering attention on a particular phase of organization or service pattern. The school library profession in the 1960's is concerned with the implementing of standards that reflect the philosophy of the school library serving as an instructional materials center, with the identifying of significant programs of library service at each educational level which fits the accepted philosophy, with experimenting in creative designs for housing, and with organizing resources to implement these programs of service.
