Non-Formal Library Training Institutes, Final Report, 1973-1976.
Eyster, George W.
The Appalachian Adult Education Center (AAEC) provided non-formal library training institutes in ten southeastern states over a three-year period, 1973-1976. With the cooperation of the state libraries, AAEC conducted institutes at 77 individual libraries and involved whole library staffs, as well as useful and interested community and agency participants, in planning basic education and other services for disadvantaged adults. Institute components included awareness sessions, construction of community profiles, client participation, two-day planning sessions, work agreements, evaluations, and follow-up services. Evaluations proved the overall success of the program as well as its cost effectiveness. AAEC also produced a series of guides and a multi-media kit on the public library. Appendixes contain an article on barriers to cooperation in the community and a bibliography of AAEC publication. (LS)
