Maine School Library Facilities Handbook PREFACE
Table of Contents
Considerations Essential Areas Comparison Tables ... Committee Excellent school library media centers require excellent programs, staff, materials, and facilities. The Maine School Library Facilities Handbook is designed to assist school library media specialists and architects in planning new or renovated facilities to meet the continually changing needs of both school children and school communities. Computers and telecommunications continue to transform how students access, use and create information. Goals 2000, the State of Maine Learning Results, Improving America's Schools Act (IASA), and other school reform legislation carry the expectation that all students will be able users of a variety of resources and technologies. Students in our schools must develop the skills needed to locate, evaluate, and use information in order to meet their academic and personal needs, and to participate fully in a technological society. The school library media specialist, in collaboration with classroom teachers, provides a library media program in which individual users, groups of students, and whole classes learn, develop, and practice these skills. These expanded expectations for students, along with the need to follow federal ADA requirements to accommodate the needs of the disabled, necessitate a new look at library design. Library media center facilities must provide for a variety of learning and teaching styles and access to new technologies. The library media center must be flexible and incorporate spaces which can accommodate a variety of simultaneous activities: whole class instruction, individual research, group work, recreational reading, and quiet study. ADA requirements often necessitate more space and special equipment or furnishings to accommodate the needs of physically disabled students. The growing role of school library media centers necessitates additional areas and increased square footage.

NOTES FROM 4 OAK STREET...By John R. Clark, MLIS Last week was a productive one. I had two goals when I left the previous weekend: Cut my supply of wood for this winter and finish the manuscript for my second book. The book got done, the wood is in process, so I'm declaring a victory. This week's column is a tribute to Walter Taranko, one of the ten nicest people on our planet. Walter is being forced to retire as the Media Services Coordinator for the Maine State Library because of ill health. To say that Walter's absence from the Maine school and library community will leave a huge hole would be an understatement. There are 844 members of Melibs, the Maine Library Listserv and Walt's name is one of a handful that would be instantly recognized by every single one on that list. Walter and I go back 24 years to the days when I was the adult education director at AMHI and was working on my masters degree in adult ed. At the University of Southern Maine. I enrolled in "Preparation of Classroom Instructional Materials" taught by Walter. Not only was it an enjoyable learning experience, but I discovered a kindred spirit who believed in taking unloved resources from one location and finding them a home somewhere else. When Walt discovered I was trying to build up the program for the patients at AMHI, He invited me to come and raid the corner of the state library where he maintained an informal stash of discarded and surplus books, record players and projectors. Walter's support and generosity made a huge difference in the quality of that program and benefitted hundreds of people who were in the process of recovering from major mental illnesses.

The following information is subject to review and change without notice.
    The College of Library and Information Science (CLIS) at the University of South Carolina is one of the nation's youngest and most distinctive schools of library and information science education. With an outstanding faculty who share the philosophy that information service is not primarily a system of procedures relating to materials but rather a dynamic human service profession, the CLIS has produced an effective educational program which prepares graduates to enter challenging and rewarding careers in libraries and information centers in colleges, schools, communities, industries, and businesses. Students in the CLIS enjoy their studies and develop, both in and out of the classroom, collegial relationships and friendships which enrich and support them throughout their professional careers. Many students who are qualified to enroll in the College's programs of library and information science education are not able to participate full time in traditional campus-based classes. We are pleased to be able to offer these students flexible scheduling and convenient modes of course delivery. The USC College of Library and Information Science leads the nation in live interactive transmission of courses. The CLIS has provided this type of innovative educational opportunity to students in South Carolina since 1982. A three-year cohort of students in West Virginia and Georgia completed the USC-MLIS program through distance education in 1995. A three-year cohort in Maine reached completion in 1997. A second cohort began in West Virginia during the 1997-98 academic year and will extend over a four year period. A second four year cohort of Mainers started in Fall 2000.
