An Investigation of the Need for Formal Education at the Post-Master's Level for Community College Librarians in Florida.
Fallon, Marcia
This study assessed continuing education needs of 120 of Florida's 130 community college librarians using a questionnaire which collected information on librarians' educational backgrounds, work experiences, and unmet educational needs. Findings indicated the majority of respondents had continued their education, and over 50% held administrative positions and had been at community colleges for the major portion of their careers. Librarians favored formal continuing education programs and cited relevant subject matter and convenient schedules and locations as their top priorities in such programs. Various recommendations in response to survey results are suggested, including continuing education courses and workshops for librarians at Miami-Dade Community College; the encouragement of other Florida community colleges to provide post-master's programs for their librarians; a statewide association for community college librarians and a newsletter; and the expansion of the study to include librarians at community colleges throughout the Southeastern United States.
