Date of Award
My special studies for the honors program mainly consisted of compiling a bibliography for a boys' training school. However, I did research involving the nature of training schools. Also, I spoke with Miss Shinn, who is the director of institutional libraries in Arkansas. She informed me that the training schools' libraries are to be approved under the same standards as school libraries. The services extended beyond books as half of this year's budget was spent on audio-visual equipment.
According to ALA school media standards, a small library should consist of at least 6000 volumes. My bibliography is not that extensive, nor is it intended to compose the basic collection. My bibliography consists of books arranged in general classifications which I would include in a training school library. Most of the titles are recommended, and I have included grade level for many of the titles.
