Education, Economics and TAFE Libraries. Proceedings of the National Conference of the Technical and Further Education National Section of the Australian Library and Information Association (2nd, Bundoora, Victoria, Australia, September 25-27, 1989).
Australian Library and Information Association, Canberra. TAFE National Section.
Seven papers address future directions that the member libraries of the Technical and Further Education (TAFE) National Section of the Australian Library and Information Association can pursue to respond to a changing environment characterized by declining public funds; the need to fulfill some of the major requirements of the government's economic strategies; the current industrial agenda; and the move towards involving TAFE in direct industry training. The papers are: (1) Keynote Address: "Productivity Gains in Education: Pressures for Reforms in TAFE" (Peter E. F. Kirby); (2) "Lobbying for Results" (Warren Horton); (3) "Educational Quality" (Eric Lund); (4) "What Happens to People in All This?" (Margaret Cameron); (5) "Managerialism, Vocational Education and Training and TAFE Libraries in Queensland" (Alex Cutts); (6) "Looking Elsewhere for Funds" (Pat Stewart); and (7) "Professions and the Politics of Public Policy" (John Power). Appendices contain the conference program, a list of participants, a conference evaluation questionnaire with a tally of the final results, a report on a guidelines workshop, and a case study exercise for developing a learning resource center at a fictional large, multi-purpose college that is facing funding cuts.
