Selected Technical Assistance Resource Agencies and an Annotated Bibliography for Rural Employment and Training Practitioners in Virginia.
Crow, Susan B., Ed.; Russell, Arneada Bray, Ed.
Third in a series by the Rural Success Program at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), the book provides a view of selected organizations and literature of potential interest to rural employment and training practitioners and planners. The book is divided into two sections. The first contains summaries of interviews with representatives of 26 non-profit organizations which reported providing technical assistance to rural employment and training practitioners and planners in Virginia. For each of 11 national, 6 regional, and 9 state-level organizations, the book lists the organization's mission, current projects, specific services, and publications, and explains how to access the organization's services. A partial list of 21 relevant state agencies and others (adapted from VCU's 9-volume series on employment, training, and support services) completes the first section. The second section contains an annotated bibliography of selected relevant books, reports, newsletters, and other materials. For the 27 books and reports, all published since 1975, the bibliography lists the author, title, and publication information, and gives a brief annotation. For the 10 newsletters listed, the bibliography gives the title, publisher, content, distribution, length, and subscription information. The bibliography also provides author, title, publishing information, and an annotation for six other publications. (SB)
