Report of the Committee on Continuing Education and Professional Growth.
Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY. Univ. Libraries
The following areas were of particular concern in this report: (1) Bibliographical control, which is considered to be the overriding purpose of librarianship; (2) the library's organizational structure, which must undergo some essential changes if the library is to meet the new challenge; (3) professionalism, which must become common and pervasive, rather than unusual and suspect; (4) the supporting staff, whose abilities must be welcomed and whose role in the library must be increased to match those abilities; (5) management training, which is necessary to an effectively run library and should be available to all supervisory personnel; (6) computers, which will and must do increasing amounts of routine and traditional library work; and (7) programmed instruction and gaming simulation, which are advanced learning techniques, respectively useful for teaching some aspects of library work systematically and for presenting the significance of all parts to the whole operation.
