Communications Manual for Librarians.
Penland, Patrick R.
The existence of problems in libraries has two significant dimensions: the theoretical and the practical even though to a large extent problems occur mainly in the minds of people. The orientation of this manual is therefore entirely practical and introductory to the point of being useful with any library staff regardless of size. Even librarians of some communicative sophistication will find the manual helpful in working towards staff development. No claim is made for the originality of the material in this manual and this is probably the strength of its usefulness to the practicing librarian. The materials and methods have been tried out in numerous contexts and for numerous problem-solving purposes. What is original with this manual, however, is the selection and arrangement of the material based upon the consultant work undertaken by the Communications Research and Media Center, Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences, University of Pittsburgh.
