A Report on the Need for Additional Programs in Library Education at the Graduate Level in the Publicly Supported Higher Education System of the State of Ohio.
This report contains recommendations concerning the need for additional opportunities in Ohio for graduate study in library science, as well as the probable location and the appropriate kinds of program emphasis for a new library school. The study considers the following campuses of Ohio's state-assisted university system: Kent State University, Toledo University, Bowling Green University, University of Cincinnati, Wright State University, Ohio State University. The criteria used in comparing new sites include the existence of other graduate programs and research efforts, the potential hierarchical position for a projected program in relation to the graduate school, the attitudes of the university's administration toward the development of librarianship, the demonstrated capacity of the institution to attract well-qualified faculty members, the computer center facilities, the library facilities, and others. The report reviews the visits to each institution and discusses the program opportunities at each. The conclusions provide recommendations for establishing the new library school at Ohio State University and proposals for further development of library education in Ohio. (RM)
