A Manual for Regional Librarians and Small Public Libraries.
Alvey, Donna; And Others
This manual is a practical, procedural handbook based on a series of workshops. These workshops were conducted for the Kentucky Regional Librarians over a one year period, beginning in September of 1968, by the School of Library Science, University of Kentucky, and the State Department of Libraries. The contents of this manual describe Kentucky regional library organization and practice as they existed in the early part of 1970 after the workshops culminated. Although directed specifically toward regional librarians, this manual can be of practical and vital use to many other librarians, particularly those from small and medium-sized libraries. Chapters 1 and 2 deal with the history and objectives of the Kentucky State Department of Libraries, and the role of regional librarians. Chapters 3 "First Task: Studying Your Community to Determine Needs," and 4 "Second Task: Designing and Implementing Programs to Meet Community Needs" will be of special interest to non-regional librarians. Because the manual is practically a training course in and of itself, it is also highly recommended for use with in-service training programs. (MF)
