LIBRARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAMS IN JUNIOR COLLEGES--COURSES OFFERED IN 1966-67 CATALOGS.
YOUNG, ELMA L.
IN 1966-67, LIBRARY TECHNICIAN TRAINING PROGRAMS OF SIX UNITS OR MORE WERE OFFERED AT 17 CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES. AT 15 COLLEGES INSTRUCTION IN LIBRARY USAGE WAS OFFERED WITHOUT A VOCATIONAL EMPHASIS. COURSE DESCRIPTIONS AND CURRICULUM PATTERNS WERE REPRODUCED FROM THE CATALOGS OF ALL COLLEGES OFFERING LIBRARY PROGRAMS. CONTENT AND ORGANIZATION VARIED AMONG THE COLLEGES, WITH FOUR COMMON EMPHASES--FUNDAMENTALS, PUBLIC SERVICES, TECHNICAL PROCESSES, AND REFERENCE. ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS IN LIBRARY TECHNOLOGY WERE OFTEN CLOSELY RELATED TO CERTAIN BUSINESS EDUCATION PROGRAMS. PROGRAM AND COURSE DESCRIPTIONS INDICATED (1) SOME CONFUSION IN SCOPE AND IN RALATIONSHIP BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNICAL PROGRAMS, (2) LACK OF NEEDED SCREENING OF STUDENTS, (3) INADEQUACY OF LABORATORY PRACTICE, (4) LACK OF TEACHER TIME, (5) NEED FOR STATE SUPERVISION AND COORDINATION, AND (6) A NEED FOR LOCAL ADVISORY COMMITTEES.
