Initial Organization and Staffing Patterns for Indian Library Services. Guide 3: Staffing for Indian Library Services.
American Indian tribes are rapidly recognizing the value of libraries. Along with the tribes, individuals and organizations are also recognizing that libraries and the information services which they offer are necessary to meet Indian goals. The organization, staffing, and programming for Indian library services, while basically similar to library services everywhere, involve certain special problems and unique situations. This booklet, third in a series of guides designed to provide initial direction and alternatives to those planning or developing Indian library and information systems, discusses some basic considerations in library governance, interrelationships with governmental units, and staff considerations. The following terms are defined: library structure, library board, staff organization, and library program. Seventeen sources for further reading are also cited. (NQ)
