Koontz, Christine; Jue, Dean K.; Lance, Keith Curry
This document is the final performance report for a Field Initiated Studies (FIS) project that addressed the need for a better assessment of public library services for adult lifelong learning in majority-minority and lower income library market areas. After stating the major educational problem addressed by the FIS project, the report lists the goals and objectives that were met, along with a discussion on any modifications or shortcomings relative to the stated goals and objectives. The report provides detailed responses to the following objectives: (1) State the major educational problem that the FIS project addressed; (2) Describe the goals and objectives of the project and the extent to which they have been accomplished; (3) Describe the issues and findings emerging from the current work; (4) Describe the major accomplishments of the FIS project since its inception; (5) Write one or two vignettes that highlight important results of the FIS project in a one-paragraph, story-telling manner; and (6) Include an annotated bibliography of key products developed under the grant and where they may be obtained. Recommendations are then provided for the nine issues/findings that were identified by the research as relative to the use of public libraries as adult lifelong learning centers serving primarily minority and low income populations. Major accomplishments of this FIS project are outlined, followed by vignettes that highlight important results of the project. A final section addresses the availability of the key products developed under the grant. (AEF)
