The "Special"Academic Library: Enhanced Information Services for University Committees and Administrators by Pat Ensor( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides information on the planning for and pilot testing of a new service called Enhanced Information Services for Administrators and Committees that was developed in 1990 by Electronic Information Services, a unit within the Reference Department of Indiana State University Libraries. The report begins with an early planning memo that provides a rationale for the service and lists eight proposed improvements to current services together with an indication of their current status if implementation had already begun (done, partly done). A personnel and cost matrix is then presented which assumes that a personal computer with a fixed disk and a near-letter-quality printer would be added to the equipment in the database room. Ten services are listed, ranging from telephone requests for services to document retrieval and delivery service. The library personnel involved--professional, support staff, and/or student assistants--are indicated for each service together with its approximate cost and possible source of funding. The current status is indicated for those already being implemented. Excerpts from the final plan include statements on the services offered, personnel involved, number of assignments, costs, identification of clients, method of approach, and evaluation methods. Copies of a memo to library faculty and a memo to selected faculty and administrators announcing a pilot test of the new service are provided together with a list of the recipients of the first round of memos. A chart depicting the Enhanced Information Services process, a tally of the results of an evaluation of the pilot test, and a copy of the questionnaire for users participating in the test are also provided.

Library Services in Institutions for Mentally and Developmentally Disabled Adults by Pat Ensor( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To improve the quality of life of institutionalized individuals, libraries can serve as a constructive escape mechanism for dealing with stress, a representation of external reality, and a therapeutic agent, in addition to offering bibliotherapy. Ideally, the library should be an integral part of the institution and provide a user-appropriate setting and therapeutic environment. Although developmentally disabled individuals have been defined by levels of Intelligence Quotient tests, the librarian must know each individual to make the most of his or her potential. The selection of materials for these individuals should be based on simplicity of format, clear directions, durability, appropriateness, and ability, and they should be available in various forms such as visual aids, books, recorded music, and realia. If the librarian is to be an effective member of the therapeutic team, he or she needs to be sensitive, objective, flexible, and ready to communicate with and treat each person without prejudice or stereotyping. Trends toward mainstreaming and the recognition of patients' rights to information and treatment confirm the importance of the library's role in the institutional program. Twelve sources are included. (Rbf)
