The Role of the Public Libraries in Adult Independent Learning. Final Report.
Mavor, Anne S.; And Others
The Office of Library Independent Study and Guidance Projects, College Entrance Examination Board and 11 participating public libraries report on the adult independent learning program. This is a historical and descriptive analysis of accomplishments between July, 1972, and June, 1975. Coverage includes project planning and coordinating activities at the national level, and service planning, staff training, and service testing and evaluation at the individual library level. The data represent the first efforts of the participating libraries to describe the adult independent learner, to characterize learning projects, and to evaluate the effectiveness of in-depth advisory and information support services. Appendixes contain training manuals, a sample training plan, and common data system forms. (Author/LS)
