This report includes both a guide to aid educators with the purchase of instructional materials and equipment in the province of Newfoundland and a section discussing how this guide was constructed. Included in this latter section are references to relative literature, explanations of the terminology, the scope of the guide, and the procedures followed in its construction. -- The guide itself is presented in an appendix. The first section is a general introduction to the guide explaining general limitations and usages and listing general guidelines to the purchase of all audio-visual equipment as well as specific guidelines to the purchase of five common pieces of audio-visual equipment. The second section alphabetically lists Newfoundland suppliers of educational materials and equipment as given in an alphabetical arrangement of 150 subject headings. This section is sub-divided into two parts: educational media and audio-visual hardware. The third section is a directory of the suppliers listed in the second section. It gives their complete name, address and telephone number, as well as the names of sales people to contact. -- The format of the guide was suggested by the July/August 1974 issue of Educational Digest. That journal annually devotes its entire summer issue to a national directory of suppliers and buyers' guide to educational materials and equipment. The format of the guide follows directly from that established in Educational Digest so as to enable its use side-by-side with that journal. The purpose of the guide is to enable educators in Newfoundland to buy locally wherever possible, thus supporting the local trade and encouraging better and more prompt service. -- It should be noted that, in general, this is an audio-visual guide. There is incursion into other areas but this is simply for the sake of completeness and for conformity with the national guide.
