This booklet was prepared in recognition of the 25th anniversary of the watershed Adult Education Act of 1966, and in acknowledgement of the key role that libraries have played in U.S. adult education throughout the century. Written by library educators, the two commissioned papers that make up the booklet describe the role of public libraries in adult education since 1900. In the first paper, "Beginnings: Public Libraries and Adult Education from 1900 to 1966," Margaret E. Monroe traces the development of literacy education in the context of library adult education from the beginning of the 20th century until 1966. In the second paper, "The Developing Role of Public Libraries in Adult Education: 1966 to 1991," Kathleen M. Heim reviews the contributions of libraries and librarians to literacy, lifelong learning, and adult education over the past 25 years. The booklet concludes with a list of 117 selected readings which relate to the theme of libraries and adult education. (Mab)

Toward a just and productive society : an analysis of the recommendations of the White House Conference on Library and Information Services by Kathleen de la Peña McCook( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper assesses the recommendations made during the 1991 White House Conference on Library and Information Services (whclis) from a public policy view, and identifies their meaning for the public's uses and needs for library and information services. Recommendations from the whclis conference which fit best with national goals were found to focus on four policy areas: (1) lifelong learning; (2) industrial policy; (3) economic stimulus: rural and urban development; and (4) information infrastructure. Each of these four policy areas is identified and discussed in terms of library and information services. Whclis recommendations that are relevant to meet goals for these policy areas are identified by number (keyed to the appendix). Following the analyses of the policy areas, possible implementations of the recommendations are discussed, and an analysis of policy recommendations is appended. Each whclis recommendation is numbered and identified with the area it is relevant to; some contribute to more than one goal. (Jlb)
