Iranian Library Education Evaluation, Licensing and Accreditation Program.
Harvey, John F.
Suggestions for the Library Education Evaluation, Licensing, and Accreditation Program were adapted from documents prepared by the American Library Association and other accrediting groups as well as from policies and procedures already being used. The Tehran Book Processing Centre executive committee approved this set of standards in the Spring, 1971. It is one of the first sets of library education standards produced and adopted outside the USA. Though somewhat different from the sets of library standards, the translation, approval, and recommendation program prescribed for this document was much the same as that prescribed for the library standards. In 1969, the Institute for Research and Planning in Science and Education asked for Tehran Book Processing Centre Planning Department cooperation in evaluating the new Tabriz and Iranzamin library education programs. When a formal higher education evaluation program is evolved, it seems likely that the Institute will follow its own precedent in asking the Centre to continue its work in this field. The same reasoning seems valid for library standards, since the Institute requested Planning Department assistance in evaluating and improving several academic and special libraries in 1969 and 1970.
