The Free Library of Philadelphia, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
This final performance report for The Free Library of Philadelphia's RDP (Reader Development Program) Tutor Orientation Project begins with a section that provides quantitative data. Actual accomplishments are then compared to the following project objectives for 1992-93: (1) provide information about RDP's advisory service to tutors and tutor trainers; (2) familiarize tutors with RDP's collection; (3) offer adult educators a variety of instructional materials for their literacy programs; (4) increase cooperation between the library and other adult education agencies and services; (5) introduce traditional services and collections of library agencies, especially those useful to literacy and adult basic education students, to adult educators; (6) increase tutors' use of RDP's satellite location; (7) enable tutors to share with their colleagues the knowledge and experience they have gained as a result of using RDP materials; and (8) determine how much impact the orientation sessions have on the use of RDP and how to continue the most successful aspects of the project. Proposed and actual expenditures are compared. Details of activities, the library's role, cooperating agencies, facilities used, and project impact are discussed. Attachments include workshop questionnaires, topical lists of books and software, workshop flyers and agenda, RDP brochures and newsletter, and a handout on using the library. (MES)
