Institute Series for Developing Public Library Services for Disadvantaged Adults. Annual Report, 1974. Volume 2.
Eyster, George W.
Volume 2 presents the background and methodology of four state institute projects (Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina, West Virginia) designed to expand public library services to disadvantaged adults, and also provides a description of the national, state, and local dissemination activities of the seven library/Adult Basic Education demonstration projects. The dissemination activities include print, nonprint, and personal contact. Awareness, interest, and trial-level institute-dissemination series are described in detail: the preplanning activities, the conduct of the two-day community planning session, and the postplanning followup or implementation stage. The development and field-testing of the multimedia library orientation kit for disadvantaged adults is described, as well as duties of the trainers and evaluation and followup activities. The nontraditional training design is viewed as a model for change in public services. (Author/LS)
