In-Service Training in Indian Libraries. Guide Number 11: In-Service Training.
Libraries and information centers are rapidly becoming an integral part of American Indian life. Even though tribes have recently taken a great deal of initiative in establishing community libraries in conjunction with tribal community centers, they have encountered problems of training staff in Indian libraries. Isolation and lack of funds, commitment, and trained Indian persons are the fundamental problems in providing library services to many Indian people. Therefore, a series of 11 guides have been developed to provide initial direction and alternatives to those planning or engaged in developing Indian library and information systems. Guide 11 of the series briefly explains the types and methods of training which have worked in Indian training programs. Suggestions are also made on how to develop an Indian training program. The guide discusses: (1) assessing training needs; (2) planning a program to meet these needs; (3) implementing the training program; and (4) evaluating the training program. (NQ)
