Identification of Information Needs of the American Indian Community That Can Be Met by Library Services. Phase IV. Progress Report.
Townley, Charles T.
Under a grant from the Bureau of Libraries and Learning Resources of the United States Office of Education, the National Indian Education Association (NIEA) implemented a Library Project to identify library and information needs of Indian people and to establish, operate, and evaluate three demonstration sites. During this reporting period, October 1, 1974 through December 31, 1974, problems were met and progress was made toward the stated objectives of the fourth phase of the project: evaluation, development of a national program, dissemination of project information, long range funding, technical assistance to the sites, transfer of site operations to local control, and technical assistance to states. Personnel turnover continued to be a problem during this period. Dissemination activities included the publication of the first of twelve guides on Indian library service. It is expected that during the next quarter more guides will be published and the evaluation instruments will be finalized. (SL)
