Library Service to Industry; Series of Four Workshops.
California State Library, Sacramento.
Library services to industry was the theme of four workshops held in Fresno, Altadena, Palos Verdes and Sacramento during March 1969. The composition of the panel at each workshop and the procedure for each panel presentation were basically the same. Each panel had a representative from industry and four practicing librarians: a public librarian, a special librarian serving industry, a college or university librarian, and a reference librarian assigned to service industry from the staff of the California State Library. The objective of the morning session was to show: (1) how each type of library can serve industry, (2) the kinds of information the industrial man can expect from libraries or information systems, and (3) how libraries can work together to supply these needs. During the afternoon session, participants were assigned to discussion groups to discuss one of five topics: (1) role of the reference librarian, (2) the goal of reference work, (3) publicity and public relations, (4) information analysis centers , and (5) interviewing the patron from industry. (See LI 002 164 for a report of the 1970 workshops.) (Author/NH)
