Recommendations for Improving Library Media Training and Services in Rural Indian Communities.
Higgins, Norman; Smith, Lotsee
This script for an illustrated presentation describes a program for improving Library Media Education Programs for American Indians. These recommendations have been implemented in training institutes in several Pueblos in New Mexico: (1) involving community leaders in recruiting and selecting students; (2) selecting students who have successful prior experience in working with people; (3) conducting technical level training in or near the communities in which students live; (4) using regularly scheduled courses to teach technical level skills needed to operate a small library media center; (5) including practical work experience under the supervision of the instructor or library media specialist; (6) making the development of library media centers one of the instructor's responsibilities; (7) paying students for meeting clearly specified expectations in their course and on-site work; and (8) arranging follow up consultation and continued development for students and library media centers. Slides and transparencies were used to illustrate the implementation of these recommendations. (AP)
