Performance Report for Ethnicity and Librarianship Institute II: Multiethnic Library Materials, Programs, and Services in New York City and Its Environs--Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey.
This report describes the activities and accomplishments of an institute for college credit at the post-master's degree level which focused on the provision of better library materials and the development of library programs for ethnic groups. The institute was organized in four parts: (1) ethnic studies--heritage and contribution of minority groups, their treatment in library media, demography, history, politics, and sociology; (2) development of library programs for minorities--assessment of ongoing programs and new designs in programming; (3) library resources available for public libraries, school and college libraries; and (4) ethnic resource facilities, specifically in the metropolitan New York area, examined in class and on field trips. A comparison of actual accomplishments with stated goals and objectives reveals success in 11 of 14 goals and in the five objectives of the program. The report presents major changes or revisions in the program, the impact on Queens College, evaluation reports, unique and innovative program features and activities, problems and their solutions, field trips and accomplishments, and program effectiveness. In conclusion, it recommends that the course of study outlined here be included in the curriculum of library education. Various aspects of the program are detailed in 14 appendices. (Author/RAA)
