Resource Center Guide.
Callahan, Susan; And Others
The objective of this guide is to provide step-by-step information needed to set up an employment and job training resource center. The format of the booklet, however, makes it easily adaptable to any small library or information center. Section I provides information and recommendations for the manager in making the decision to start a library. Management decisions discussed include function, service, organization, staffing, and location of the center. Section II, the bulk of the publication, is written in such a manner that a person with little or no library science background will be able to set up an effective library. Library procedures outlined are cataloging and classification, storage of materials, circulation, selection and ordering of materials, reference, and administration. There are eight appendices including a Glossary of Terms; a Checklist of Resource Center Supplies, Furnishing and Equipment; and Sources of Equipment and Ordering. (Author/JAB)
