Title:The School Library Becomes a Materials Center: Stages of Development
Author(s):Bomar, Cora Paul
Subject(s):School libraries
Abstract:At this Institute we have been concerned with examining research and practical experience that support the concept of a school library materials center; we have teamed of new resources for the school library materials center, and of patterns for organizing and processing these resources. We have spent some time discussing the planning of facilities to house the school library materials center. We have also had presented to us exciting descriptions of school library materials programs that exemplify desirable use of the school library materials center by both teachers and students. The topic for consideration in this paper, "The School Library Becomes a Materials Center: Stages of Development," is not an easy one to tackle for it is at this point that we are charged with the task of attempting to answer the question, "How does the school library become a materials center?" or another way of phrasing the topic is, "We are ready and willing, how do we begin?" I have approached this assignment wondering what could be said that has not already been covered. But, I am happy to have this opportunity to share with you a few elementary beliefs, activities, and programs that may reinforce what you are already doing, or may give you, who are school librarians, the courage to implement plans for the further development of your school library materials center.
