Dean Vs. Chairman.
Harvey, John F.
This paper deals with the field of library education administration and is based on observation, reflection, and analysis. The author was head of an American graduate library school for nine years, and immediately thereafter, 1967-68, as a Fulbright Professor, headed an Iranian library school for thirteen months. Rather than attempt to compare library education in the two countries, almost as large an undertaking as comparing the two parent institutions, Drexel University (then Drexel Institute of Technology), in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the Faculty of Education, University of Tehran, this analysis focuses primarily on a narrower and more manageable subject, the two positions themselves, dean vs. chairman. This is the story of their comparisons and contrasts, their rewards and problems, one important variable being held constant, the nature of the position as a university graduate library school headship. Most of the comparisons will be made after juxtaposing information from each position, topic by topic. (Related documents are: LI 004245 through LI 004267.) (Author)
