Developing Skills in Planning Humanities-Based Library Programs. Proceedings of an Institute (Austin, Texas, October 11-18, 1975).
O'Donnell, Peggy, Ed.
In 1974, the Southwestern Library Association (SWLA) with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities undertook a project to develop humanities programs to be implemented in local libraries. An institute was designed to train participating librarians in techniques for designing library programs incorporating themes from the humanities and emphasizing the heritage of the Southwest. The goals of the institute were to increase library service and to promote local libraries as cultural resource centers. This report summarizes the contents of the training institute, and includes: a copy of the agenda; the texts of instructional presentations; a digest of pre-institute questionnaires; and results of an evaluation of the institute.
