And gladly teach The American Hospital Associations experience in conducting institutes on hospital librarianship In Proceedings of the 2nd International Congress on Medical Librarian-ship, Washington, 1963



Bull Med Libr Assoc 52(1): 81-89



As part of its overall educational program, the American Hospital Association has since 1959 conducted 3 institutes on hospital librarianship to meet the demand for more competent librarians in medical, nursing school, and patients' libraries. The purpose of such institutes is to teach the basic elements of library science to untrained personnel in hospital libraries. Discussed are steps in initiating an institute; factors determining length, date, and place; financing; publicity; choice and responsibility of local advisory committee; program content; qualifications of instructors; characteristics of registrants; materials for distribution; evaluations. Details of the most recent institute are outlined. A summary of problems still facing this type of educational program and suggestions for future improvements conclude the paper.
