Dr. Martha Merrill Co-Authors Dictionary for Media Center Professionals

JACKSONVILLE -- September 5, 2001 -- Dr. Martha Merrill, professor of instructional media, has co-authored Dictionary for School Library Media Specialists: A Practical and Comprehensive Guide published by Libraries Unlimited. Mary Maude McCain, who has recently retired as a school library media specialist, is the other co-author. Libraries Unlimited considers this dictionary to be the "first of its kind, providing a single source of definitions for the language specifically used by media center professionals." The dictionary is meant to be a practical, up-to-date, and comprehensive guide to the basic terminology used in the daily operation of a K-12 school library media center. It contains definitions of terms that relate not only to the school library media program but also to computer science, counseling, educational administration, educational psychology, educational technology, educational testing, instructional design, literature, and special education. It should be helpful to both the beginning and the experienced library media specialist.
