Title:The School Library Supervisor at the Municipal Level
Author(s):MacBean, Dilla
Subject(s):School libraries
Abstract:With the vast changes in the rapidly expanding educational program of today we have witnessed new areas and new services encompased in the curriculum and within the school as school boards, administrators, teachers, pupils, community leaders of allied social agencies have joined together to educate the whole child. There is a common desire and endeavor to work with the individual child according to his abilities, needs and interests so as to develop a worthy member of society. The library plays an important role in this program and the concept of it has changed and grown apace. In discussing supervision in multi-library situations it should be emphasized that the fundamental principles are the same regardless of the size of the city. The organization in large cities is different simply in that the operation is far more complex. In any administrative or supervisory position it is essential to know the objectives of the institution and their relation to a department or sub-division of this parent agency. It is then necessary to formulate purposes and aims based on these objectives for the allied specialized area. It is likewise important to be directed at all times by these objectives and purposes. The admonition to a player of any ball game, "Keep your eye on the ball, " can well be applied to this basic rule in supervision. In establishing policies, in direct and indirect contacts with associates and with the personnel within the department, these principles will help maintain a true perspective and keep one from going afield.
