Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for Basic Skills for the Librarian of the Small Public Library at Boise State College... June 8 - 19, July 6 - 17, August 3 - 7, 1970.
Fairchild, Marjorie E.
The Institute was aimed at the approximately 90 small libraries in rural Idaho towns which are staffed and administered by locally recruited people, few of whom have any library training. A Selection Committee consisting of the Project Director and the Director of the Idaho State Library selected participants on the basis of the degree of commitment on the part of the applicant for self-improvement, the probability that the applicant would be able to utilize his learning in his library, and his potential to exercise greater influence in his community because of his attendance. Five separate workshops were held within the Institute, covering the areas of: reference services, children's services, community services, book selection, and cataloging. (AB)
