Perceptions Held by Library Officers of Inservice Training Needs for an Effectively Administered Program Afloat Within the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean Areas.
Luster, Arlene Leong
Thirty library officers from 27 ships of the U.S. Navy participated in this study to ascertain the training needs of shipboard library officers in library administration and to determine their perceptions on their positions as administrators and managers of general libraries aboard ship. It was found that three-fourths of the officers were college graduates under 25 years old with little or no training in library administration, and that 90 percent indicated a need for a library administration program. The report provides a definition of the problem, a review of related literature, a description of the research procedure, and a summary of findings, conclusions, and recommendations. Appendices provide a sample questionnaire, an interview guide, a critical incident questionnaire, a program paradigm, and a proposed training model for library administration orientation. Tables are included, and a bibliography lists 91 sources. (FM)
