Description: School Library Development Project File including grant applications, correspondence, addresses, inventories, newsletters, programs, reports, public relations brochures, photographs and newspaper clippings related to the School Library Development Project funded by a $100,000 grant of the council on Library Resources. The project promoted understanding and implementation of the 1960 national Standards for School Library Programs. The Standards, published in monograph form by the ALA, described school library resources and services needed for quality education for children and young people and resources and presented guidelines for developing school library programs. Funds were allocated to help selected states meet the costs of obtaining special consultants, holding planning meetings, providing programs at conferences and obtaining materials for distribution. The file includes a narrative script, tape recording, and 60 35mm color slides for We Serve Our Schools (1961), produced by the School Library Development Project.
