Ever Thought of a Library Career? Presenting Library/Media Technology as a Positive Career Option.
Rothlisberg, Allen P.
This report describes how courses offered by the Department of Library/Media Technology at Northland Pioneer College (Arizona) can be effective in bridging the gap between the professionally trained master's degree librarian and the untrained library clerk or volunteer. The courses, which are typically offered on weekends, are designed to specifically assist individuals working in isolated rural settings. The courses are founded on the philosophy that the community can be an important library resource and that community involvement and ownership are important to the success of a library. It is noted that the college is making an effort to recruit students who are not working in libraries, but who would be challenged by a library career, including professionals seeking career changes and housewives re-entering the workforce. A copy of a Northland Pioneer College flyer advertising its library courses concludes the report. (MAB)
