The Commonwealth Secondary Schools Libraries Committee was appointed by the Minister for Education and Science to advise him on the conditions and standards necessary for the effective development of the new program in relation to the independent schools. This involves recommending desirable standards for library buildings. furniture and equipment. books and materials and also establishing methods by which existing deficiencies in library facilities and services in particular schools may be determined. Committee members will visit independent schools to report to the Minister on their library needs and to assist the schools in developing plans for building adequate library facilities and in selecting materials and equipment. The Committee will thus be concerned with defining suitable standards for a modern secondary school library and with recommending means by which these standards may be attained in particular situations.
