Nevada Libraries Continuing Education Plan 1995.
Nevada State Library and Archives, Carson City.
This Continuing Education Plan was developed by the Nevada Libraries Continuing Education Advisory Committee which was created in 1987 in response to the need for library-related educational programming statewide. The document includes a mission statement; the Nevada libraries criteria for quality continuing education; and a list of goals and objectives. These goals focus on: (1) increasing competence, expanding knowledge, and reinforcing attitudes of excellence and service; (2) supporting Continuing Education (CE) opportunities which acknowledge differences among libraries in the state and developing specific programs to meet specific needs; (3) establishing CE credit programs for all library personnel and sequential basic library science curriculum for non-MLS personnel in public libraries; (4) promoting graduate-level education for Nevadans at accredited graduate library schools; (5) maximizing access to educational resources and opportunities through a Clearinghouse and Resource Center; (6) developing and implementing a full-scale CE promotional campaign utilizing every available media format; and (7) hiring a full time Library CE Coordinator to implement this plan in cooperation with individuals and institutions statewide. The program proposal form and the Report on Continuing Education Needs for the Nevada Library Community are appended. (AEF)
