Ideas are presented on current practices in the continuing education of library personnel in the midwestern United States, with some emphasis on the role of state libraries and library associations. Allan B. Knox, Director of the Office of Continuing Education and Public Services, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, contributes the lead article on the philosophical and theoretical aspects of continuing education for librarianship. Allie Beth Martin, Director, Tulsa-City-County Library System, contributes a model for a coordinated program for all library personnel and involving all relevant agencies and organizations. One other area that has great potential is the new thrust toward individualized instruction. The article on Lincoln Open University discusses the program in Illinois. Other articles focus on current activities in five midwestern states--Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin. The final article is a selected annotated bibliography on continuing education 1965 to date, citing books, periodicals, and ERIC documents. (Author/SL)
