Professional Development.
Inouye, Patricia C.; And Others
A Liaison Committee at the University of California-Davis' library studied the concept of professional development, including the individual librarian's responsibility and the General Library's role in assisting its librarians. This document enumerates the committee's recommendations and outlines (1) the factors which influence the extent of a librarians's involvement in professional development activities; (2) responsibilities of the librarians; (3) types of activities considered relevant; (4) a time accounting system that can be used by full-time librarians to determine how much time can be utilized for such activities; and (5) changes that should be adopted with respect to request forms, job descriptions, and "resume of activities" for professional development. The committee concluded that, although professional development is mandated and some assistance is available, the choice of how much time and to what degree each librarian participates in professional development rests with the individual.
