Summary

The actual performance and use of library technical assistants (LTSs) and the question of certification were the topics considered by the sixty participants at this meeting. Evidence of the existence and use of LTAs was given by Mrs. Elnora Portteus in her paper entitled: "The Role of Library Technical Assistants - Actual and Potential," in which she described the performance of LTAs in the Cleveland Public School system. Currently employed LTAs presented their views of their career in the second session. All described their jobs as supportive and all work in cooperation with and are responsible to librarians. The question of certification was discussed in the third session by Ronald W. Scull who explained procedures and possible difficulties of certification of LTAs. At the final session of the meeting, Ruth Hyatt presented a preliminary statement on job description of LTAs. The supportive role of LTAs in preparation and performance was stressed. At this meeting, improvement of preparation and utilization of LTAs took precedence over the debate about acceptance and identity problems. Participants agreed that the best defense of the worth of the LTA is quality performance in a truly supportive role. (Author/NH)
