Evaluation and Distribution Study of Videotapes Prepared for Training of Library Personnel (The ACCESS Videotape Project). Final Report.
Katz, Ruth M.; John, Jane
The final report on the ACCESS videotape project assesses the project from production to distribution. The 16 videotapes and the accompanying study guide are evaluated for their usefulness as continuing education materials for librarians (with or without degrees) in small public libraries. Distribution methods considered are: cable television, public broadcasting, satellite, and the mailing of cassettes to be used on video playback equipment. Publicity and plans for wider dissemination of the program are also discussed. Evaluation results presented indicate that the tapes are a valuable continuing education tool, are most easily distributed by mail for use on playback equipment, and are most effectively used in a workshop setting. Recommendations are made for additional areas of instruction for library inservice training. Appendixes contain evaluation forms and ordering information. (LS)
