Consultants Workshop, New England State Library Extension Agencies, September 7 - 9, 1967.
Rhode Island Univ., Kingston. Graduate Library School.
The Workshop for Library Consultants was prompted by the serious need of training for performance of consultant services. Four areas were chosen as a framework for participation: recognition of common problems, assimilation of materials, development of background preparation and planned performance of individual service. The four work sessions were planned to insure participation and also to demonstrate all the techniques available to a consultant who hopes to develop leadership in working with groups of people. During the three days each individual was part of a changing group of consultants urged to give thoughts to various areas of common interest, to ask questions, to comment and to exchange ideas. The work sessions were concerned with: (1) recognizing common problems, (2) materials useful to state library consultants, (3) the consultant in action and (4) demonstration: library board meeting. The other five sessions consisted of: two luncheon and one dinner speaker, a reactor panel and an evaluation of the workshop. A roster of participants and a bibliography are also included. (NH)
