Peterson, Fred M.; And Others
The second of two volumes, this prototype home-based study course for library/media/information personnel is designed to provide a better understanding of the complexity of human behavior and the motivational climate in an organization, and to enable course participants to contribute to the effective development of human resources in the library or information center. Five modules comprise the course: (1) motivation in the organizational setting, (2) individual needs--organizational responses, (3) integrating individual and organizational goals, (4) the manager's role in motivation--leadership styles, and (5) creating a motivational climate in the organization. Each module contains an overall discussion of sub-topics, an annotated bibliography of print and nonprint materials for further study, tests on required readings, and self-tests and exercises. Guidelines for successful participation in home study courses are presented for course authors, reviewers, students, study groups, and faculty evaluators. Procedural guidelines for the handling of administrative details of home study programs are also presented. (SW)
