The statistics which form the basis of this paper were compiled from the result of a questionnaire supplemented by correspondence and information from annual reports and the "Nigerian Libraries," and the "Ghana Library Journal." The data obtained from the questionnaire are presented in the appendices, and are followed by a list of libraries in the order in which they appear in the statistical table, with full name and address, explanatory notes and other relevant information. Two criteria were used as the basis for inclusion: administration by a professionally qualified librarian, and, in the absence of a professional, the size and special significance of the book collection. The data which was supplied falls under four headings: (1) use of the library-indicated by the number of registered readers and volumes borrowed, (2) stock - the library's total holdings in volumes and the number of serial titles currently received, (3) expenditure - annual recurrent expenditure (in some cases no distinction was made between capital and recurrent spending) and (4) staff - number of personnel. This investigation provides a check list of sixty-one libraries in the three English-speaking West African countries of Nigeria, Ghana and Sierra Leone. (Author/NH)

Assessing outcomes in higher education : practical suggestions for getting started by John William Harris( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of national and campus tests/measures to assess student academic achievement is discussed, along with measurement of student attitudes and behavior, with attention to specific tests and testing programs. It is important for faculty to develop goals for student achievement and to determine whether a test fits a given college program or course. Standardized, objective tests have been used extensively for selection purposes, and external tests are useful for assessing basic skills and deficits for purposes of placement or remediation. A few external tests assess outcomes of general education. When using outcomes assessment to improve instruction, faculty should be involved directly in evaluating student performance. National tests are also used to assess knowledge and skill in major fields of study. Assessment procedures on campus include course examinations, tests to assess major field proficiency, using examiners other than the student's primary instructor, and senior comprehensives. For various fields of study, externally-validated instruments are identified for the assessment of student performance in associate and baccalaureate degree programs. New ideas in the field of assessment are listed, and the concept of the assessment center is mentioned. The innovative approach of Alverno College (Wisconsin) is described. Publications, testing programs, and sources of information are also identified. (SW)

Librarians for Ghana by John Harris( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of librarianship in Ghana began in 1944 when Miss Fegan, an experienced librarian, was assigned by the British Council to run a training course for library assistants at the Achimota College Library. The subsequent development of libraries, library schools, and librarianship in Ghana is traced. To become a professional librarian in Ghana today requires the completion of a diploma course which is open only to university graduates judged to have the requisite qualities of mind, personality and temperament to make satisfactory librarians. The course consists of two parts: (1) one academic session, ending with five written examination papers and (2) the completion of a written bibliography or thesis and practical experience in an approved library. The subjects covered in the syllabus are: (1) cataloging and classification, (2) bibliography, (3) history of libraries and librarianship and (4) administration. (Author/NH)
