Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this paper is to briefly study the processes involved in preparing a budget applicable to a school's instructional materials center(hereinafter referred to as the IMC). However, before a library's budget can be studied and analyzed, the practices and theories of general school finance must be examined--where the money comes from and how the overall school budget is prepared. After such an examination, it becomes much easier to narrow the scope of study to the school library budget. At the individual school library level, much of the same planning theory takes place as it does on the district wide basis--although, needless to say, at a lesser dollar figure.
