Some Current Concepts About Library Education.
Boaz, Martha
A review of current thought and activity in the library education field is presented. A brief introductory section discusses the developing role of the librarian as humanist and scholar, the influence of the library school atmosphere on teaching effectiveness and the importance of traditional student-teacher interaction in library education. Innovations in educational technology are summarized. The major part of the report explores current trends in library instruction techniques: computer-assisted instruction in reference courses, the computer-based laboratory of the Syracuse Library Education Experimental project, team teaching, the case study method for reference and library management courses, simulation and role-playing, group dynamics, the systems approach, independent study, off-campus practice, problem-oriented curricula, free university courses, and a mobile library program.
