Cooperative Projects of Graduate Library Schools and Public School Systems. A Report to the Council on Library Resources.
Fast, Elizabeth T.
Under a grant from the Council on Library Resources during the period from May 1972 to October 1973, a study explored ways in which graduate library schools and public school systems can cooperate for mutual benefit. Part 1 of the report highlights information gained from a telephone survey and followup visits to selected library schools to identify areas in which cooperative projects are, or could, function, particularly in the training of school media personnel. Part 2 of the study examined the programs preparing school media specialists in five library schools in the northeastern United States. From this review of curriculum there is developed a complementary inservice program for staff development of media specialists. Part 3 describes some of the cooperative projects which have been implemented between the Simmons College School of Library Science in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Groton Public Schools, Connecticut. It is concluded that college/school cooperation in library education can be very valuable and should be extended. (Author/SL)
