Changing Concept of Service in Libraries: A Centennial Lecture Series and Symposium.
Indiana State Univ., Terre Haute. Dept. of Library Science.
The main concern of this lecture series is innovation in librarianship. Today's librarian must be more than a technician, more than a collector and storer of materials. Today's librarian must be an innovator. Education for librarianship must stress the diverse community and the ability to understand and work with people of a varied education, social, economic and cultural background. One aspect of education for librarianship which is very effective and well received is direct contact between student and the practicing librarians. This lecture series afforded an opportunity for an interchange between library science students and practicing librarians and it also involved librarians in the Terra Haute area in a form of continuing education. The lectures included in this series are: (1) "School Media Center--Where Next?"; (2) "Aspects of Direct Access and Delivery: Free and Swap, Media Exchange, Pre-Paks"; (3) "Plus One = Service Dividends"; (4) "State and Federal Financial Support for Library Service--Comparison of Priorities"; and (5) "Centralized Cataloging for the Country--Now and in the Future."
