Taylor, Richard L., Ed.
In an effort to obtain grass roots information, a panel composed of employers and library technical assistants (LTAs) presented views and ideas which were important to them and of concern when looking toward program evaluation. The group then considered the four courses which seem to be basic to most programs. Objectives, content, and teaching methods were discussed in order to gain insight and assistance in meeting the needs of both employers (or potential) employers and students. This was an exploratory workshop which revealed that: (1) there is a need for an understanding of LTAs and the programs initiated for them, (2) the curriculum needs to be reevaluated constantly, (3) curriculum content must be relevant, (4) honest counseling is essential and (5) more reflection should come about locally in light of national trends. The appendices contain bibliographies of: (1) Public Services, (2) Technical Processes, (3) Audiovisual Services and (4) Introduction to Libraries. The fifth appendix is a Job Description for Library Media Center Technical Assistant. (Author/NH)
