Some Practical Considerations in Continuing Education.
Continuing education programs in library and information science need to be coordinated, regularized, and modularized for increased efficiency, economy, and effectiveness. Institutes, workshops, and seminars are more attractive to participants and easier to organize if they are presented in a topical series or module. Reimbursement of expert contributors and intelligent re-use of good programs improves the quality of a series. A sponsor who takes care of secretarial and publicity support increases the efficiency of a program, as shown by the successful Simmons Library School Alumni Office sponsorship of continuing education programs in New England. Further coordination and long-range planning by professional groups is needed to define and meet professional education needs. (Author/PF)
