Extractions: The Development of School Libraries in South Carolina The following speech was delivered by Margaret Ehrhardt on March 31, 1988 as the Third Annual Deans' Lecture of the University of South Carolina College of Library and Information Science. Ms. Ehrhardt was Supervisor of School Library Services for the South Carolina State Department of Education from 1970 until the early 1980s. THE CRUCIAL YEARS: SCHOOL LIBRARY MEDIA CENTERS The years 1945-1985 were crucial years for school library programs, not only in South Carolina, but for the nation as well. The ALA Handbook for 1944 showed that only 15 states had school library supervisors. It was interesting to note that seven of these were Southern states, including North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee. Tonight I should like to explore with you some of the significant events that have helped to shape the development of school library media programs in our state. The first significant factor was the employment by the State Department of Education of the first Supervisor of Library Services. It is seldom that one can pinpoint the beginning of a library media program, but this is not true of school library media services in South Carolina. The date was March 29, 1946, and the time was 11:00. It was then that an announcement was made to the School Library Section of the South Carolina Education Association which was in session at University High School here in Columbia that the State Department of Education had received a grant from the General Education Board (of the Rockefeller Foundation) to employ a Library Supervisor. This was the first attempt to bring structure into what had been haphazard library development in the schools.

Extractions: First Elementary School Libraries West of the Mississippi Happy 60 th Anniversary to Elementary School Media Centers in the Davenport Community School District! In the 1941-42 school year, as the first of their kind in any elementary school west of the Mississippi River, these centers were known as school libraries with their rows of shelved books. Today, they function as school media centers, mixing tradition with innovation and complementing rows of books with clusters of personal computers. These centers of learning activity are moving front and center throughout the district in a very tangible way. Twelve of the building renovation projects recently completed or underway districtwide have included expansion and even relocation of school media centers so they are more visible and accessible to the community. Through the years, the roles of Davenport district media specialists also have expanded beyond library science expertise to include technology know how. Often, media specialists are the technology experts in their schools, keeping computers working in individual rooms while also assisting students and teachers, and leading lessons in classrooms and the media center.

The Davenport district introduced the first libraries in elementary schools west of the Mississippi River over 60 years ago in 1941-42. During the past two years, 12 schools in the district also have benefited from expansions and even relocation of school media centers so they are more visible and accessible to the public.

Extractions: November 16, 2000 (JACKSON, MS) - Beginning in January, ten Mississippi school districts will embark on a unique project that will increase the availability of classroom technology and the employability of participating students. Through the Computer Recycling Project (CPR) students will learn to build and upgrade computers for their school district as well as serve as tech-support teams. The curriculum is designed by ExplorNet, a 501(c) 3 non-profit, in conjunction with the Mississippi Department of Education to ensure the course meets the state's technology goals. "Rural communities that have struggled to equip their schools with state-of-the-art technology can really benefit through this program, " said Andrew Smith, State Director of ExplorNet-Mississippi. "Participating schools save money as the student-built computers are deployed to other classrooms or media centers, so all students can learn from this technology, not just a select few." CPR students may also provide tech-support for teachers, allowing schools to further leverage their technology dollars.

Extractions: August 29, 2000 (HOLLANDALE) - U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley announced today Mississippi's statewide expansion of the ExplorNet Technology Learning Project, an innovative workforce development program that provides technology training to students in America's most rural communities. "I am delighted when I hear about unique programs such as ExplorNet's," said Riley during the third leg of his "Success Express" tour. "By introducing hands-on technology skills to students in these traditionally under served areas, we are helping pave the road to their economic success. This program provides a foundation to a number of careers." The centerpiece of the ExplorNet program is the Computer Recycling (CPR) Project. The curriculum teaches students to analyze older computers, remove outdated parts, and replace them with state-of-the-art components. They are also capable of building new machines from scratch. Students then install these machines in other classrooms or media centers so all students can benefit from the latest technology.

States not responding were: Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Utah, Washington, and W. Virginia. To create this national report on school library staffing, SLJ asked me to survey school library media officials in state libraries or education departments in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. All but 15 responded.
Extractions: Many school librarians who entered the field in the 1960s are almost ready to retire. And their junior colleagues in public schools in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and, most recently, Massachusetts, may join them sooner rather than later, thanks to early retirement legislation. This turnover would be no problem if most states required districts to hire only certified staff and if library schools were flush with trained and ready recruits. www.usnews.com/usnews/issue/000612/lib.htm
