Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for the Education of Prospective State Library Agency Professional Personnel, April 5-June 11, 1976.
Robbins, Jane; And Others
A ten-week institute was developed to train library students in the western United States for work in state library agencies. Learning activities included lectures, guest speakers, discussions, role-playing, field trips, four weeks of field work, case studies, research, and report writing. The focus was on state library history, special aspects, agency functions, specific roles and responsibilities, reference services, planning, management, and budgeting. The training also covered public relations, legislation, consulting services, national and regional networks, government publications, legislative reference services, library association roles, continuing education, and institutional library service. A formal evaluation of the program indicated that while some improvements in facilities and scheduling might have been desirable the major goal of training librarians for state library work was accomplished.
