Abstract : The report describes the results of a project to conduct research on, and to develop, instructional materials for use in on-the-job training of professional and non-professional library personnel in scientific and technical libraries. The report reviews the research, design, and development activities completed in previous reporting periods, but concentrates on the effort following October 31, 1968, which involved field testing the developed instruction, analyzing the test results, and making final modifications to the instructional packages before turning them over to USOE. Three instructional packages were developed. One, directed to professional librarians, provided an introduction to system analysis, with particular emphasis on its relevance to library operations. The other two instructional packages, designed for non-professional library personnel, consist of workbook materials on reference tools and services and Russian-to-English transliteration. (Author)
