The Albany Librarianship Trainee Program; Final Report--August 1973.
Kirwin, Arthur R., Jr.; Carrington, Pamela
In the summer of 1970 The School of Library and Information Science of the State University of New York at Albany received a grant from the United States Office of Education (Higher Education Act of 1965, Title II-B) to initiate a three-year undergraduate and graduate program leading to the Bachelor of Arts/Science degree (field of choice) and to the Master of Library Science. The Albany Librarianship Trainee Program had as its objectives: a) early recruitment of twenty financially disadvantaged undergraduates who would have had to postpone plans for immediate graduate study, b) a commitment to significant recruitment of minority students. The twenty grantees were chosen on the basis of the following criteria: 1) meeting the minimum academic qualifications for transfer to the State University of New York at Albany 2) commitment to three years of education leading to the Master of Library Science 3) commitment to eventual entrance to the Library and Information Science profession 4) economic inability to finance this further education through family or personal resources. The various phases of this program are briefly discussed. (Author/SJ)
