|Title:||The School Library Becomes a Materials Center: Stages of Development
|Author(s):||Bomar, Cora Paul
|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.
