The Relevance of the Core Curriculum in Preparation of Library School Students for Professional Library Duties.
Comaromi, John P.; Ballard, Robert M.
Seventy-two graduates of the School of Librarianship of Western Michigan University who attended the school during the years 1965-1970 responded to a survey questionnaire. Data were compiled on the background and personal characteristics of the graduates, as well as their estimation of the relevance of courses taken to their professional duties and responsibilities. Of the required courses taken by at least half of the respondents, Reference Service and Classification and Cataloging received the most positive responses. Courses which were regarded negatively were, in order of rank, Foundations of Librarianship, Library Administration and Management, and Selection of Books and Materials. (Author/BM)
