*Indicates item was weeded

Considerations for weeding items:

Not being used

Outdated or obsolete information

Physical condition of item

Limited space for the collection

Lack of circulation

Multiple copies available (with low circulation)

To align the collection with the school’s goals, mission, and curriculum

improves access and visibility




RESULTS OF COLLECTION MAP ANALYSIS


The collection mapped was that of Duran Junior High School in the Pell City School System located in Pell City, Alabama. The school now houses 8th grade students only. In the year 2006, the 7th grade students were moved to another school building in the system, due to overcrowded conditions. The library materials were divided between the 7th and 8th grade school libraries, leaving both collections with much to be desired.


The average copyright date of the collection mapped is 1992, the oldest copyright date is 1979, and the most recent copyright date is 2011. These dates were discussed with the librarian. She does not feel that this section of the collection is current enough. When considering the average copyright date is 22 years old it is obvious that it needs to be updated. Much of the information in the older books is correct, however outdated pictures, etc. may make it undesirable to some library patrons. Splitting the materials with the 7th grade school has made an incomplete collection. There were many items taken to the 7th grade library that need to be replaced in the 8th grade library collection.


Realizing that there are holes in the 8th grade library collection the librarian is trying to make other items available to them through the library. The two libraries (7th and 8th grade) have a loan agreement making more items available to the faculty, staff and students.


The Pell City Public Library allows the librarian to conduct an application drive for students to obtain public library cards. Originally public library cards were not issued to students under 16 years of age, unless the parent was present. The public library agreed to allow the 8th grade students to obtain a library card with only a parent signature. This gives the student access to more than 500 e-book titles through the Pell City Public Library.


The items are occasionally requested by students, but most often by teachers. The teachers will ask for items to be pulled for students to research when their class visits the library. There are times that books are pulled and taken to the classroom for use by the students. While the computer may be the easiest way for many of them to complete research, it is valuable that they also learn to research using books.


Occasionally, there is a student that does not have parental permission to use the computers. In this circumstance the student is not allowed to use the computer, when the class visits the computer lab. When this happens teachers may ask for books to be pulled for the student to use to complete the assignments. Many times the students must be given an alternate assignment.


Teachers and students are more likely to use the computer lab for research on the subjects covered in the 910-919 Dewey range. When using the library there are other resources with some of the information covered in this Dewey range. There are encyclopedias, copies of older textbooks, atlases, and movies that may be used to research this information. However, it is easier to “Google” a subject and find multiple resources on the subject.


Other formats, such as the internet, seem to be more desirable to teachers and students. Students are familiar with computers and many of them find it easier to research using the internet. Students also enjoy the use of movie clips, documentaries, speakers, etc. to supplement a lesson plan.


Most of the items in the library collection are age appropriate. The special needs teachers are consulted when materials are ordered for lower level students. It is important to find as any materials as possible that are of a high interest level, age appropriate and has a low reading level.


The librarian held a book fair the week of October 13 – October 17. While the book fair does make some profit it is really more of a service for the students than a successful fundraiser. It is also a way for the librarian to learn the interests of the student body. She is also currently conducting a fundraiser to acquire funds to update the library collection, including the 910-919 range. It is important that the librarian is aware of the curriculum covered in the 8th grade. The students, faculty and staff will be surveyed for recommendations on materials needed.

Justifications for Materials Order

• Our school currently houses 8th grade students only. In the year 2006, the 7th grade students were moved to another school building in the system, due to overcrowded conditions. The library materials were divided between the 7th and 8th grade school libraries, leaving both collections with much to be desired. The average copyright date of the collection mapped is 1992, the oldest copyright date is 1979, and the most recent copyright date is 2011.


• According to the Alabama course of study, 8th graders study world history up to the 1500’s. Geography is covered in 7th grade, and 9th grade picks up with world history past the 1500’s.


• These three areas were the ones most focused on. We added fifty - six books, six ebook, and six audiovisual materials.


• Several of the ebooks are in book ebook form and have a matching hardbound book. Also, books written in Spanish were added to our collection, as well as books written on lower reading levels to help accommodate any students with a special need in the area of reading.


• The largest purchase was a Junior Worldmark Encyclopedia of Physical Geography, totaling $448.25. However, we are sadly lacking in encyclopedias.


•There were two purchases just over $100 each, but both were a set of books. One was a set of five Britannica’s Student Atlas books and the other was a set of five books about the Atlantic Ocean. This including information on wreaks, storms, battles, and oceanic information.


• Each purchase will be an asset to our library.
