Education of State Library Personnel: A Report With Recommendations Relating to the Continuing Education of State Library Agency Professional Personnel.
Hiatt, Peter; And Others
The committee reviewed the continuing education needs of state library professional personnel, although the report has applicability for all levels of personnel in all libraries. The greatest immediate need was for the continuing education for consultants and consultant techniques. The state library administration must understand the consultant role and participate in his educational role. The participative laboratory method of adult learning is most successful to educate consultants and administrators. The committee recommended education of a representative from each library under a program of five days duration beginning in 1971, which would be self-supporting. Establishment of a National Advisory and Action Committee for Continuing Education of State Library Personnel was also recommended, as was the responsibility for continuance of the initial program by that Committee. The development of new materials and packaged programs to support a continuing effort is also recommended. (AB)
