Library Executive Development Program; Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for Advanced Study for Librarians Under the Higher Education Act, Title II-B, April 14 to April 25, 1969.
The activities of a two-week library executive development program held at the University of Washington are outlined. This program was organized to help executives of all types of libraries understand current issues and concepts in business and public administration so that they will be better able to meet the needs and demands on libraries as modern information centers. Some specific objectives of the Institute program are to provide for the participant: (1) knowledge of the functions and principles of modern upper-level management; (2) an experimental learning process that will emphasize the application of pertinent theory in such areas as work analysis and simplification, budgeting, organizing, decision-making or problem-solving, human relations, and leadership; (3) an opportunity to examine common problems with other library executives and to discuss them with members of the faculty and develop friendships with other participants, and increase his confidence in himself.
