Rule 10 includes a quality indicator for school media centers:

006 Media and Technology Resources

006.01 Quality Indicator: The library/media/technology program provides a wide
range of accessible print and electronic resources that expand opportunity for
learning, contribute to information literacy, support the local curriculum, and
enhance and enrich learning experiences for all students.

during the entire school day. All library media resources are properly cataloged,
marked, and shelved according to a standard classification system. Each school

with copyright dates in the past five years.

006.01B Each elementary school acquires a minimum of 25 new library media
resources in print format, exclusive of textbooks and encyclopedia, of different
titles, per teacher per year, up to 150 titles during one year. The minimum
