Hispano Library Services for Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico; A Workshop Held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, April 30, May 1-2, 1970.
Vadala, Julia, Ed.
A three-day continuing education workshop on Hispano cultural and historical perspectives was developed for librarians and library administrators to help them understand the Hispano culture and to help them improve the library services for the Hispano community. Such library services should be based on the cultural, linguistic, and information needs of the Mexican-Americans. This publication of the workshop proceedings includes the major speeches as well as the most meaningful ideas to emerge from the discussions. These action-oriented suggestions can be summarized as follows: (1) patrons should participate in workshops, be selected to membership on boards of trustees, serve as volunteers and library aides; (2) representatives of the community serving on advisory boards should be involved in selecting appropriate materials; (3) librarians could serve as instruments through which bilingual programs might be established; (4) in-service programs on the culture and values of this segment of society should become an integral part of library administration; and (5) librarians should go out into the Hispano community taking materials to the patrons and talking with them about their informational and educational needs.
