History of Books/Jobs Project: Akron Public Library, July 1, 1968 through June 30, 1972.
Lawson, Louise Gail
A history is given of the Ohio BOOKS/JOBS Project (funded by the Library Services and Construction Act, Title I through the State Library of Ohio) as represented by Akron Public Library's participation in this project from July 1, 1968 to June 30, 1972. Included are background, description, and statistical data on the five distinct work projects of the BOOKS/JOBS Project: the Ohio Steering Committee; the Summit County Steering Committee; the Pilot Project for Summit County (July, 1, 1968-June 30, 1969); the Continuation Project (July 1, 1969-June 30, 1970); and the Training and Sensitivity Project (July 1, 1970-June 30, 1972). These programs used mainly films and filmstrips to give service and information to the unemployed and underemployed, both directly and through employers and community agencies. Since films on job-seeking were found to be oriented to the middle class, films on black history and culture and sensitivity training were emphasized during the later stages of the project.
