Libraries and Library Job Opportunities in the Inland Empire.
Dart, Gary R.; Shell, Elton E.
San Bernardino Valley College instituted a library technician training program in September 1967. During the 1967-68 year, certain deficiencies became apparent, namely, data on job opportunities in the area served by the college and on what qualifications the graduates of the program should have. In June 1968, a survey of the area (limited to one hour's driving distance from the college) was begun. Libraries were categorized as (1) college and university, (2) public, (3) public school, (4) private and parochial school, and (5) special and technical. Of the 116 questionnaires sent out, 71.6% were returned. Job opportunities and qualifications for non-professionals are discussed by category. Tables show salary range; number of possible jobs; and educational, clerical, and experience requirements. The writers suggest that both librarians and employees would benefit if job titles and descriptions were standardized. (HH)
