The Helping Aspects of Training the New Information Professional.
Crickman, Robin D.
This speech, presented in response to Ronald G. Havelock's "The Information Professional as Change Agent" at the 1977 annual conference of the Association of American Library Schools, is an overview of the helping aspects of training the new information professional. It contains a summary of current thinking, reviews the skills needed by information professionals, discusses the personal traits of library school students that both hinder and facilitate the acquisition of those skills, and suggests training methods for overcoming the negative traits. The need for a professional organization to provide a framework for the continuing education and of library school graduates is stressed. (Author/KP)
