Recommendations for the Improvement of Education for Librarianship in Texas.
Douglass, Robert R.; Stallmann, Esther L.
Texas institutions of higher education which offer library science courses were surveyed. Considered in the surveys were: finanacial support; faculty size, rank, ages, education, work experience, teaching loads, and salaries; enrollment and hourage registration; number of degrees and certificates completed; curriculum; extension courses and continuing education; library collections and facilities; and non-teaching staff. Recommendations for the improvement of library education in Texas are for one doctoral program, four master's degree programs and five 18 semester hour undergraduate programs. It is also suggested that criteria and standards for programs to certify school librarians be standardized. The aim is to have a few good library education programs rather than several weak ones. Statistical data collected from the surveys is provided in tabular form. (SJ)
