Post-Master's Education for Middle and Upper-Level Personnel in Libraries and Information Centers. Final Report, Phase I.
Kortendick, James J.; Stone, Elizabeth W.
A major way of upgrading the profession of librarianship is through a post-master's education program. This data base for the curriculum development of such a program utilized two data-gathering instruments: (1) a questionnaire and (2) interviews. The data are presented under three-headings: (1) questionnaire results, Chapters III, IV, V and VI; (2) interview results, Chapter VII and (3) summary, conclusions and recommendations for further study, Chapter VIII. Summarized, the conclusions were: (1) the program should use an interdisciplinary approach, (2) a systems format should be used in planning and implementing the program, (3) the approach should be practical and based in the library school, (4) multi-media approach to instruction should be used, (5) motivational factors should be used to reach a substantial number of librarians and (6) the program should be offered on a part-time basis for financial reasons. Tables and graphs are used to illustrate the information gathered. (NH)
