Title:New Resources for the School Library Materials Centers
Author(s):Whitenack, Carolyn I.
Subject(s):School libraries
Abstract:As a graduate of the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science, one continues to carry in his life-long learning activities those ideals, concepts, and goals that were first given to him in his graduate training. Thus I have been exposed to a multi -materials philosophy for many years, and this philosophy is so much a part of me that I feel highly honored to speak with you about "New Resources for Library Materials Centers.* Dr. Stone, our keynote speaker, set the tone of this conference and was able to express so clearly all the potential of the school library materials center. I think that in practice we do not as yet reach this goal, but we are moving in that direction. It is hoped that this audio-visual presentation (Colored slides were used throughout this presentation illustrating titles, equipment, or uses of library resources in individual libraries.) will amplify what Dr. Stone said, and in addition, expand your understandings of the new things that are happening in the school library world. Before presenting slides of the many types of resources available today, I should like first to recommend to each of you the publication, The School Library, Facilities for Independent Study in the Secondary School, published by Dr. Harold Gores, President, Educational Facilities Laboratories, 477 Madison Avenue, New York 22, N. Y. I hope each of you will write for a copy and express appreciation to him for this very thoughtful and imaginative publication. And I hope you will also write to Dr. Ralph Ellsworth and thank him for his authorship of this significant publication. Someone in the audience asked last night, "What can we do to communicate with our superintendents?" The Education Facilities Laboratories, because it was primarily designed to assist the superintendent, is one agency that is respected by them. Your superintendent has already received this publication. Go in and ask him for his copy, borrow it, and discuss the principles expressed in it in relation to your own library program.
