Leadership for Change; A Report of the Outreach Leadership Network.
Conroy, Barbara; And Others
The Outreach Leadership Network (OLN) was a regional program of continuing education for public librarians in New England. Federally funded under the Higher Education Act (Title II B), the project began July, 1971, and continued formal activities through October, 1972. The overall goal of the project was that of providing for more effective programs of public library services directed toward presently unserved community groups. OLN sought to provide educational programs which would increase the ability of librarians to plan and launch successful and effective programs to actively extend library services to more citizens than presently were being served. This outreach educational program also served as a training ground for the development of a cadre of public library leaders -- librarians not only committed to outreach service but also skilled in program planning and in working with groups. Project activities provided multiple opportunities for outreach-committed librarians to "network" with each other; that is, to share ideas and resources within each state and across state lines. This document contains an administrative report by the OLN project director and a report of the evaluation team. (Author/SJ)
