Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing. Papers Presented at an Institute for Training Librarians for Special Black Collections and Archives, April 12-14, 1973.
Robinson, Harry, Jr., Ed.
An institute was conducted to provide some training to librarians, archivists, and historians in locating, selecting, preserving, and disseminating Afro-Americana. Specialists in the field, including those who work with non-print materials, acted as contributors. A diverse population of librarians, library students, and representatives of other agencies participated. Among the topics covered in the institute papers are: the history and development of outstanding black collections, methods for encouraging the use of such collections, preparation of grant proposals for support of special black collections, and collection of the oral tradition. Current projects for collecting black materials and for personnel development and planning related to black collections are summarized. (Author/PF)
