ERIC, mission, structure, and resources : a paper commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education, Educational Resources Information Center by Jane B Robbins( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a first step toward developing a strategy for a comprehensive external evaluation of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system, this paper contributes by providing an overview of the system's mission, structure, and resources. A brief review of ERIC's historical development and extant literature, the conduct of a key informants survey, coupled with comparative analysis with the two other subject-specific U.S. national library information systems are used to produce a preliminary assessment of strengths and weaknesses, followed by recommendations and approaches for further investigation. ERIC's mission, understood as a formal statement of purpose, is seen to have broadened considerably in audience and collection scope over the past 35 years, and is further expanded by the needs and realities of an information society. The structure of the system, understood as both formal and informal alliances and hierarchies between organizational units, has changed very little in its decentralized internal arrangement; however, ERIC's nominal integration with the National Library of Education in 1994 is seen as a critical change that still requires key organizational integration at all levels, encompassing mission, structure, and resources. Despite these far-reaching changes, ERIC's resources, understood as the products, people, and financial commitments that go into the system, have remained essentially level and are, therefore, insufficient to support the increasing number of products and services produced by the ERIC system. Findings and conclusions stress the need for mission prioritization and subsequent realignment of structure and resources based on this refocused mission. An appendix contains the survey results.

State librarianship, modular curriculum by Jane B Robbins( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This modular curriculum on state librarianship is designed to be used as a basis for a full-length library science course, instructional segments of several courses, continuing education courses, or workshops. The 20 curriculum modules cover the many facets of state libraries and their activities--history, functions, social and political environment, laws and legislation, collections, management, budgeting, evaluation, and services to the legislature and state agencies. In addition, there is emphasis on the special role and responsibility of state libraries as coordinators of interlibrary cooperation, networking, library development, continuing education, consulting, planning, and institutional and special library services. Each module includes a lecture content outline, ancillary learning activities, and additional material for expanding the lecture. Lists of possible target audiences, objectives, and basic and supportive readings are also provided for each module. A separate bibliography related to each module is attached. (Ls)

Celebrating diversity : a report on and plea for multicultural graduate library education by Jane B Robbins( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses to what extent during the past eight to ten years the student bodies of accredited library schools have changed from the predominantly white demographic characteristic. Its principal focus is upon the financial, educational, psychosocial, and cultural barriers involved in higher education for Black, Mexican, Native, and Asian American minority students. It also briefly discusses concerns specifically related to Canadian library schools and the education of foreign students in American library schools. Even though a number of schools have undertaken effective recruitment programs and there are more non-white librarians, it appears as though the progress made to-date has been the result of one-time efforts supported by dollars outside the regular budget; at present, there is little indication that racial diversity is a priority in graduate library education. The major problems that must be overcome to increase minority enrollments include: (1) the profession's obsession with high education standards, such as gre scores and grade point averages, as the primary prerequisites for admission to graduate school; (2) ill-defined and unarticulated recruitment and admission policies with respect to minority enrollments; and (3) curriculum content which currently does not emphasize intercultural communication and minority group concerns. A selected bibliography on minority higher education and librarianship is appended. (Author/JPF)
Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for the Education ofProspective State Library Agency Professional Personnel, April 5-June 11, 1976 by Jane B Robbins( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A ten-week institute was developed to train library students in the western United States for work in state library agencies. Learning activities included lectures, guest speakers, discussions, role-playing, field trips, four weeks of field work, case studies, research, and report writing. The focus was on state library history, special aspects, agency functions, specific roles and responsibilities, reference services, planning, management, and budgeting. The training also covered public relations, legislation, consulting services, national and regional networks, government publications, legislative reference services, library association roles, continuing education, and institutional library service. A formal evaluation of the program indicated that while some improvements in facilities and scheduling might have been desirable the major goal of training librarians for state library work was accomplished.
