Continuing Library and Information Science Education. Final Report.
Stone, Elizabeth W.; And Others
Continuing education is needed for professionals in the library and information science areas so that they may provide the best possible service in a time of expanding knowledge and information delivery systems. The Continuing Library Education Network and Exchange (CLENE) is proposed as a result of a nine-month study completed for the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science. The functions of CLENE would be to (1) assess needs and define the problems, (2) coordinate and acquire information, (3) develop resources and programs, and (4) communicate and deliver the information and resource materials for continuing professional education. The organizational structure of CLENE would be in the form of a nonprofit corporation, with separate planning and policy, implementation, and evaluative units. The appendixes include survey instruments used in the study, survey results, lists of those interviewed, some alternative models, a position paper from the Association of American Library Schools Committee on Continuing Library Education, and a bibliography.
