Improving Library Education for Selected Minorities.
Higgins, Norman C.
Intended to identify educational practices that have been effective in preparing Spanish surnamed and American Indian students for library careers and to describe recommendations for improving library education programs for these minorities, this study examined eight such programs through their final program narrative reports, interviews with participating faculty and students, and documents associated with program development and academic affairs. The set of 18 recommendations resulting from this study are organized under five topics: student recruitment, student selection, curriculum design, supoort services, and placement/follow-up activities. Study procedures are detailed, and appendices include a list of library education programs for the above-mentioned students, a list of preliminary recommendations, and the use of the special review panel members.
