Library Service to Industry; Series of Two Workshops: [San Diego, June 16, 1970; San Leandro, June 19, 1970.]
California State Library, Sacramento.
In 1969, four Workshops on Library Service to Industry were held in California (see LI 002 163). Expressed interest in additional workshops on the same subject resulted in the two workshops reported here. 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. Mrs. Phyllis I. Dalton, Assistant State Librarian, then summarized the meeting activities and presented conclusions for the day before adjourning the workshop. (Author/NH)
