America's Bicentennial; Some Ideas for Librarians. Revised and Updated Edition.
San Francisco Public Library, CA. Bay Area Reference Center.
The Bay Area Reference Center (BARC) held a workshop to present some bicentennial ideas for librarians. Speakers discussed possible librarian involvement in the American Issues Forum; a bicentennial reading, viewing, and listening list for children; press criticism of such a list produced for adults; black American attitudes toward the bicentennial; possible library programs for the bicentennial year; and San Francisco in 1776. Other presentations included a slide show about Sacramento Public Library's bicentennial mobile van, songs by Malvina Reynolds, and two motion pictures. BARC provided bibliographies, briefly annotated, on the bicentennial, California and San Francisco in 1776, colonial life, and the American revolution in fiction as well as a bibliography of selected federal documents and lists of bicentennial happenings, information sources, and organizations. All of these are appended. (LS)
