School Library Personnel Task Analysis Survey. Special Report.
American Association of School Librarians, Chicago, IL.
Recent innovations in education have necessitated a new approach to education for school librarianship. The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) is endeavoring to contribute in this area through the School Library Manpower Project. The Project is designed in two phases: I-Task Analysis of School Library Positions, and II-Education and Recruitment for School Librarianship. This Task Analysis Survey is part of Phase I. The one-year survey was based on a purposive sample including the total universe of public and private schools in the nation considered by experts to meet specially developed evaluative criteria. The purpose of the study was the identification of the best in school library media centers, the types of personnel staffing those centers, and the tasks performed by persons in each type of position. The report includes profiles of staff characteristics, task and duty analysis, and a selected bibliography of 25 items. (Author/CC)
