The Shaping of American Library Education.
Churchwell, Charles D.
This essay analyzes and explains the movements, events, and influences that made distinctive contributions to the development of education for librarianship between 1919 and 1939. Special attention is given to the proposals of Charles C. Williamson, Emma Baldwin, and Ernest J. Reece. Also considered are the activities of the Committee on Library Training, the Professional Training Section, the Association of American Library Schools, the Committee on Certification and Standardization, the Library Workers' Association, the Board of Education for Librarianship, the Carnegie Corporation's Ten Year Program in Library Service, and the American Library Association. Essentially a history based on a survey of historical documents, the book contains an appropriate bibliography. (Author/LS)
