Report of the Statewide Continuing Library Education Advisory Committee on the Development of a Program to Meet the Educational Needs of New York Continuing Library Education Planners and Administrators.
New York State Library, Albany.
The 5-year action plan, proposed to develop a cadre of continuing education specialists through a state level educational program for persons carrying out educational programming and planning for New York continuing library education, addresses two related needs: the need to improve the program planning process, and the need to provide people with diverse backgrounds representing a wide range of organizations and interests with the information necessary to respond to emerging continuing education issues. The plan consists of three elements: a continuing library education network, an information clearinghouse, and a multilevel training program. Activities appropriate to each element are outlined, including the publication of a directory of New York continuing library education providers, a biennial state level training program with regional spinoff training, informational idea exchange meetings during New York Library Association conferences and on a regional basis, and the creation and distribution of information packages. It is also recommended that a permanent state level continuing library education committee be established. This report defines the program planning process and identifies issues, knowledge needs, skills required, and fundamental attitudes useful for productive involvement in continuing library education. A draft contact list of continuing library education providers is appended. (RBF)
