Preparing New Hampshire's Librarians and Trustees for the 21st Century. A Report of the New Hampshire Task Force on Trustee and Librarian Education.
Partello, Peggie, Ed.
In the spring of 1995, the New Hampshire Task Force on Trustee and Librarian Education was formed and charged with: (1) documenting the current state of librarian and trustee education in the state; (2) determining the educational needs of each group; and (3) making recommendations to the State Librarian regarding educational requirements, means to meet the educational needs, and roles and responsibilities for the New Hampshire State Library, state library associations, educational institutions, and other government agencies and policymakers. The task force developed two survey instruments--one for librarians and support staff and one for trustees--to assess current education levels for educational needs. This report presents results related to: certification for public, school, and academic librarians; current course offerings; continuing education for librarians; redefining library education; core competencies for librarians; continuing education for trustees; and core competencies for trustees. Appendices include: task force membership; the library employee/volunteer survey; the trustee survey; list of educational opportunities; portfolio documentation form; list of state and regional associations; American Library Association competencies for young adult and children's librarians, and a bibliography of resources consulted.
