On-the-Job Training Program for Library Aides Working in Queens Borough Public Library's Operation Head Start Picture Book Program for 3-5 Year Olds.
Queens Borough Public Library, Jamaica, NY.
Non-professional college graduates or undergraduates at the junior or senior level, called Library Aides, are trained for work with the Operation Head Start program through an individual on-the-job method of instruction. Each new Aide is assigned for a period of two weeks to one of four Operation Head Start Branches staffed with a children's librarian who assumes responsibility for his on-the-job orientation and training. At the conclusion of the two week orientation phase, the new Aide is permanently assigned to a Branch where he receives further training under the guidance and supervision of the Branch Librarian. This manual outlines the initial training phase and includes a training checklist and service rating form. (JB)
