LTAS in the Library Manpower Picture; Proceedings of Annual Workshop (3rd, Chicago, January 28-29, 1972).
Taylor, Richard L., Ed.
The significant theme dominating the Council on Library Technology's Third Annual Workshop was one of defining the problems that beset Library Technical Assistants (LTAs), training programs, directors of programs, administrative staffs of junior and community colleges, and anyone connected with the use of middle level personnel in libraries. Workshop participants discussed the following: LTA programs in regard to recruitment, attrition, faculty, curriculum, salaries and placement; the need to define LTAs in terms of analysis of tasks, routines and problem solving responsibilities; the processes to be followed in establishing new programs and a program director's responsibilities; problems of recruitment; and a five point plan for placement. (The proceedings volume of the Second Annual Workshop is ED 059 742.) (SJ)
