Support Staff Involvement in Library Planning: A Staff Development Activity.
Miller, Ruth H.; Davis, H. Scott
In this report, the collective experience of non-professional support staff in academic libraries is suggested to be an invaluable--and often overlooked--human resource in long-range library planning. At Indiana State University Libraries, a special staff development activity was formulated to tap the creative energy of the library support staff as part of a library-wide effort to prepare the institution for the 1990s and the turn of the century. Relying primarily on the technique of small group brainstorming, the day-long activity resulted in many useful suggestions and observations that were helpful in charting the library's course for the future and acted as a morale booster for the staff. The report describes the planning, implementation, and evaluation of staff development activity. Actual planning and implementation documents are included, as well as the evaluation instrument and a brief summary of evaluation results. (SD)
