Education for Information Science (Documentation).
Borko, H.; Hayes, R. M.
An educational program has been developed in the field of information science that emphasizes the design of information storage and retrieval systems for the acquisition, processing, control, and dissemination of documents. The program leads to a Master's Degree in Information Science at the University of California. Systems analysis plays a central role as the methodology of the program. This report reviews the array of contexts within which information science could be taught and then provides detailed information on the aims and content of the five basic information science courses in the program. The report also discusses the overall objectives of the program; the procedures by which students are helped to achieve these objectives, including the role of courses in other departments; the use of information science courses by non-library students; and the role of the thesis.
