Advisory Counseling for Librarians.
Penland, Patrick R.
The papers in the first section of this publication develop an understanding of the background, purpose and functions of advisory counseling in libraries. The purpose of the papers in the second section is to delineate the interrelationships of information transfer and meaning transfer and to lay out a background where flexibility can be developed in moving from one frame of reference and orientation to another with the same patron. The third section explores the principles and functions of counseling and of guiding the healthy, self-actualizing adult towards human development organized around life states, social role and various coping behaviors. Papers in the fourth section consider a variety of principles and techniques for interview and question analysis. The fifth section presents the principles and methods of evaluation and research of advisory counseling for librarians. The appendix contains items that have been developed for the teaching of interpersonal communications. The bibliography is selective and is included for its value in helping to identify the field of interpersonal communications.
