Improving Library Education Programs for Selected Minorities.
Higgins, Norman C.
Recent surveys of library personnel conducted by the American Library Association indicate that educators responsible for planning and implementing library education programs have not been effective in recruiting and training Spanish surnamed and American Indian persons for library service. Recommendations for improving library education programs which were derived from a study of library education programs designed to accommodate these two groups are given. Information related to all aspects of planning library education programs was collected and analyzed for the purpose of identifying those things that library educators can do to improve training in librarianship for selected minority students. Particular emphasis was placed on identifying effective ways to recruit, select, train, and place Spanish surnamed and American Indian students. (Author/AP)
