A Handbook for the Administration of Special Negro Collections.
Shockley, Ann Allen
Many of the instant black collections are being stocked with reprints and administered by persons not knowledgeable in the field of black history, black books or black people. This study attempts to provide an initial basis that will be strengthened by the experiences of trial and error and the growing need of librarians for a criteria in administering black collections. The course includes the function of the Negro Collection in the instructional program, planning for services to Black Studies Programs, Afri-American Studies Programs and other special curricular programs, services to the community, the preparations of grant proposals, budgeting, and coordinating activities with other library functions. The Special Negro Collection in the Fisk University Library is used as a laboratory. (Author/NH)
