The Role of the Professional Librarian In the Training of LTA'S. Proceedings of the Fifth Annual Meeting, Council on Library Technology.
Johnson, Dorothy T., Ed.
This report includes the three speeches and panel discussion that formed the substantive content of this conference. One speech concerns the functions of the library technical assistant in terms of current and future trends in library operations. The systems approach and new technologies are regarded as factors pushing libraries in the direction of manpower reorganization. The other two speeches indicate the challenge and significance of community colleges for the education of paraprofessionals, including the library technicians. In a panel discussion librarians and library educators, reveal their unique insights into their own special responsibilities in training middle level personnel and suggest ways in which other professionals may participate. The questions and answers following each are presented. (CH)
