A Report: Resource Identification Workshops.
Schwartz, Shula; And Others
The Library Networking Committee, whose goal is to determine and establish means of resource sharing within Northern Virginia, set up a series of workshops in ten subject areas--art studies, careers and vocational guidance, energy and environment, genealogy, gerontology, law, music, professional education, state and local documents, and urban affairs--to assess existing library collections, plan for further holdings development, develop methods to eliminate acquisitions duplication, direct users to the strong collections, and develop a resource guide in each subject area. Included in this report are summaries of the ten workshops--dates, host institutions, locations, participants, and activities; recommendations; separate guides to resources in each subject area, containing information on institutions offering courses, programs, location of resources, and special collections and/or services; and a directory which lists corporations and institutions participating in the workshops. Appendices contain a workshop proposal, schedule and correspondence, an evaluation questionnaire, and a guide to bibliographies and special holdings on each subject. (Author/MBR)
