Curriculum Resource Materials for Adult Education Librarianship.
Pypcznski, Penny
Growing out of concern for lack of library school training for adult education work, this paper summarizes a literature review on librarianship for adult education, outlines topics of concern for a curriculum in adult education librarianship, and lists resources for use in developing such a curriculum. The literature review, focusing on the growth of adult education and the need for library services, includes report of a survey of thirty college catalogs (randomly selected from the fifty-seven accredited library schools) which revealed that only one school in the Northeast offered a specific course: Library Adult Education Services. The outline of curriculum concerns covers problems and responsibilities of adult education librarianship, types of library adult education service, forms of training for adult education librarians, and ideas for working with library adult education. The resource list suggested for use in curriculum development cites forty-one books, twenty-six articles, eight reports, nine ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) documents, eight dissertations, fifteen adult education periodicals, eleven national associations, and six special programs and services. Concluding recommendations emphasize the need for librarians to understand the goals of adult education and the problems peculiar to working with adults in the educational, not recreational, aspects of the library.
