Samore, Theodore, Comp.
The papers presented at the 1974 seminar are grouped under four headings. The six papers in section one discuss community information needs and methods of interpersonal and intercultural communication. Section two describes several existing urban librarianship training programs and outlines models for the effective training of librarians to meet community information needs. Two additional papers in this section describe the Advocate Counseling Model for effective individual individual/institution interaction. The three papers in the third chapter deal with field work and field supervision in urban library training. Section four contains reactions of students and teachers to urban librarianship training. Twenty-eight recommendations, of which eight relate specifically to American Indian populations, summarize the proceedings of the seminar. Appendixes contain a list of participants, a seminar schedule, an evaluation of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee School of Library and Information Science Inner City Institute Program, and a bibliography.
