Job Description and Certification for Library Technical Assistants.
Grego, Noel R., Ed.; Rudnik, Mary Chrysantha, Sister, Ed.
Job description and certification are the two areas which must be clarified to assure proper employment for library technical assistants (LTA) which is the purpose of the Council on Library Technology (COLT) regional workshops. (This is the second of four.) Discussion on the first day of this two-day conference was devoted to job description and the problems of writing job descriptions. Certification of LTA's was considered the second day. The program was structured to provide a summarization session at the last meeting. Reports from the three discussion groups were presented and the tasks included as jobs for the LTA are listed. It is also noted that the LTA must be so oriented that he recognizes for himself the limits of his responsibility and the limits of authority inherent in his position making constant supervision unnecessary. He must also realize that he is ultimately under the direction of a librarian. The major ideas presented are summarized. (NH)
