This overview of the current situation in archival training and education worldwide describes the regional characteristics of training schools in Europe, North America, Latin America, the Arab states, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. The training capacities of both developed and developing nations are discussed, as well as technical training in conservation procedures, reprographics, and data processing, and the character of archival training schools in Dakar and Ghana. Problems in determining the scale of personnel needs in archives are assessed and quantified. Also addressed are the availability of appropriate teaching materials and the problem of identifying and training teachers of archive science. Appendices provide a descriptive list of archival training schools and statistical tables illustrating archive manpower standards. A bibliography lists more than 80 sources. (FM)
