Foster, Donald L.
An introductory letter, a list of general instructions on how to proceed with a correspondence course, a syllabus, and an examination request form are presented for a correspondence course in the fundamentals of library science offered by the University of New Mexico's Division of Continuing Education and Community Services. The course is a survey of the history of libraries, the social forces affecting the objectives and functions of modern libraries, types of library services, the library profession, its philosophy, publications, and organizations, and the major trends and problems in the field. The text used is Jean Gates'"Introduction to Librarianship." The syllabus contains 36 lessons with questions and essays designed either to examine the student's grasp of specific materials covered in the readings, or to give the student an opportunity to express his or her thoughts on a subject dealing with library science.
