Library Research in Czechoslovakia and Its Implementation in Practice.
As part of the Project of Further Development of the Czechoslovak Educational System, a program adopted in 1976, library education has been revised beginning in the secondary schools, extending through the university level, and providing continuing education opportunities for librarians, technicians, and researchers. Secondary school curriculums provide the basic skills through courses in library technical processes, library services, bibliographic work, and information studies, including automated systems, to prepare library technicians for public libraries and information centers. University level work, which may lead to a doctorate, generally offers three specialities: the universal or general information librarian, the integrative or cross-discipline librarian, and the subject specialist. Core curriculums specified for these fields are supplemented by extensive opportunities for study in languages, sciences, and other specializations. A system of continuing education exists at all levels to insure professional development. The ultimate goal for professional library education is the development of a sound theoretical and scientific research base. The seven references listed are in Czech. (RAA)
