Proceedings of Military Librarians' Workshop. The User and the Library (11th, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, October 31-November 2, 1967).
Air Force Inst. of Tech., Wright-Patterson AFB, OH.
The purpose of this workshop was to investigate the problems the user faces in using a military library and to develop some methods of overcoming these problems. To provide balanced representation of both users and librarians, outside speakers contributed ideas that were discussed in group meetings. Each group discussed the same major topics, developing the important points in their own way. Summaries of the group discussions were later presented to all the workshop attendants. Partial contents: (1) Thom, Arthur R. "The Library and the User", (2) Downie, Col. Currie S. "The Role of the Technical Library in the Air Force STINFO Program"; (3) Demidovich, Lt. Col. John W. "Preparing the Military Librarian for the 21st Century"; and (4) the reports of the discussion groups. (Author/CM)
