Resource Sharing in Professional Education for Librarianship: An International Approach.
Reid-Smith, Edward R.
The development of professional education in librarianship is reviewed from the national pattern conforming to the general system in each country, through the unilateral (paternalistic) internationalism in librarianship due to colonialism and the emergence of a new professional nationalism, to the opportunities offered by the growth of such multilateral international bodies as UNESCO, COMLA, and IFLA. It is proposed that UNESCO/IFLA organize a scheme of international cooperation in education for librarianship in order to ensure wider utilization of resources. Teletuition, staff exchanges, and sharing of educational software are some methods suggested. (Author/JEG)
