Katz, Ruth M.; And Others
A set of five 3/4" color videocassettes and two slide/sound shows on topics relating to public library services to an aging population was developed. These programs, together with a study guide, are known as the VINTAGE series and were designed for use by library staffs in small and medium-sized public libraries. Five tasks were completed during the project period: needs assessment, scripting and design, production, evaluation and field-testing, and dissemination. The final report includes a bibliography of items found to be useful by the project staff. Project conclusions note the ongoing need for continuing education and staff development software, and for project durations longer than twelve calendar months. Recommendations include investigating the feasibility of developing a software clearinghouse, increasing the use of telecommunications to deliver training, and funding for regional production centers.
