Continuing Education for Special Librarianship; Where Do We Go From Here?
Sloane, Margaret N.
During the three hour planning session 125 representatives from 20 Special Libraries Association (SLA) Chapters discussed (1) the need for continuing education for special librarians, (2) the structure of continuing education, and (3) the content of continuing education. This report was taken directly from the transcription made during the session. As a result of the session, the Education Committee proposed that pre-conference seminars directed toward continuing education be held, beginning at the 1969 SLA Conference. The group unanimously approved the need for such seminars and felt that the Education Committee should take the initiative and begin the seminars. A minimum of four seminars, running concurrently, will be held in the Conference hotel the day preceding the opening of the Conference. The seminars will be led by individuals with demonstrated experience in the fields. The leaders will be paid and there will be a registration fee for attendees. Suggested topics for the seminars include systems analysis, personnel management, materials, and automation. (CC)
