1978: Supervision of Employees in Libraries


Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 24, 1978); Edited by Rolland E. Stevens

On November 12-15, 1978, the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science sponsored its twenty-fourth annual Allerton Park Institute at Allerton House, located about twenty-five miles southwest of Champaign. The theme chosen by the faculty of the Graduate School of Library Science for this year's institute was "Supervision of Employees in Libraries." The institute was planned for persons who are now (or soon expect to be) first-line supervisors in libraries in order to provide them with practical assistance in learning how to perform their supervisory responsibilities. All types of libraries were to be covered, with emphasis on public vu viii Supervision of Employees in Libraries and academic libraries of medium to large size, as these are the libraries in which problems of supervision arise most often and in which principles of good supervision have, therefore, the most useful application. Supervision of both clerical and professional library employees was covered in the program.
