Curriculum Review Tape Recordings consisting of 26 cassettes and two reel-to-reel tapes of faculty meetings from Sept. 24, 1970 to May 14, 1971, concerning a review of Library School curriculum. Chaired by Herbert Goldhor (Director, 1963-78), the meetings were attended by the full faculty, two graduate student representatives and an officer of the Curriculum Development Division of the Office of Instructional Resources. The major decisions of the review were that the School of Library Science would no longer offer undergraduate courses and that the curriculum were the structure and content of core courses, the subject content of library science, and teaching methods, especially modules and faculty guidance and evaluation of students.
This series also includes a tape of a panel discussion held May 20, 1971, with committee members making presentation on ground rules, background and a chronological account of the year-long review. Minutes for all but the first and last meetings can be found in record series 18/1/3, box 56, folder: Faculty, Committee on curriculum.
