Information Science Education.
Parker, Edwin B.
The possible objectives of information science education can be categorized into three general types: professional training intended to equip people to operate existing communication institutions; training of information technologists who will be the inventors or engineers expected to develop and test new information systems; and training of scientists whose goal is a deeper understanding of information processes in general. This paper describes objectives and methods for reaching these objectives within each category from the point of view of librarians, and argues for training programs at each category which combine elements and emphases from the other categories. Stanford's information systems Ph.D. program is briefly described. (Author/SH)
