Cooperation Among Unlike Institutions for Todays Learning Force.
Rochell, Carlton C.
Our thinking and institutions must be channeled to meet new challenges created by changes in communications, the international scene, science and technology, and emotional and social behavior. Ten trends are identified in Higher Education from reduced growth rate to the realization that nontraditional education today will be the education of tomorrow, and institutions must consider the resulting problems of reaching clientele, and cost, financing, implementation, and development of maximum access, flexible educational programs. Adaption of the educational process to individual needs may be a solution. Public libraries and community colleges, the least traditionbound institutions, can facilitate life-long learning through cooperation. Libraries can serve clients, refer educationally advanced students to special courses, and community colleges can grant appropriate credit if necessary. Studies show a demand for expanding the library's role as learning facilitator. A new definition of public information service including extension of capabilities to serve life-long learners could provide the public library with a new relevancy. (Author/KP)
