State Librarianship: Modular Curriculum.
Robbins, Jane; Powell, Anne
This modular curriculum on state librarianship is designed to be used as a basis for a full-length library science course, instructional segments of several courses, continuing education courses, or workshops. The 20 curriculum modules cover the many facets of state libraries and their activities--history, functions, social and political environment, laws and legislation, collections, management, budgeting, evaluation, and services to the legislature and state agencies. In addition, there is emphasis on the special role and responsibility of state libraries as coordinators of interlibrary cooperation, networking, library development, continuing education, consulting, planning, and institutional and special library services. Each module includes a lecture content outline, ancillary learning activities, and additional material for expanding the lecture. Lists of possible target audiences, objectives, and basic and supportive readings are also provided for each module. A separate bibliography related to each module is attached. (LS)
