Proceedings of the 1972 First Annual Federal Interagency Field Librarians Workshop (Washington, D. C., September 24--September 28, 1972).
Federal Interagency Field Librarians Workshop, Washington, DC.
The thrust behind the necessity for these workshops was the apparent interdependence of libraries having mutual problems and solving these problems by close cooperation and communication. The workshops have outlined agency programs and policies; emphasized better agency-wide service; promoted efficiency and economy of operations; encouraged exploration of new methods and techniques for library service and dissemination of information; pressed education and training of library personnel, and provided a forum to establish attitudes and goals for a maximum service effort for information communication. The workshop enables field librarians and technicians to obtain training in basic areas of library procurement, acquisitions, reader services, technical services, budget preparation, data information, library public relations and related library services. The week-long, realistic training session is geared to both non-professional and professional personnel who are charged with a library operation in field stations and in the larger agency libraries.
