Abstract:

On-the-job and in-service training for subprofessional staff, librarians, and information specialists was discussed. There was general agreement that more emphasis should be placed upon training subprofessional employees and that, with proper training, library technicians could perform duties now performed by librarians. There was concern that the grade structure reflect the responsibilities of these jobs. It was recommended that librarians be advised to take correspondence courses when library schools are not locally available. The Federal Library Committee was urged to work toward securing more uniform interpretation of Civil Service standards for library positions in the librarian, the library technician, and information specialist series. It was also urged that information concerning education facilities be made more freely available to library employees.
