The Teaching of Technology as a Subject for the Preparation of Librarians, Documentalists, Archivists and Other Information Specialists.
This document deals with the initial technological training of professionals in the information services at three levels: the main professional level, the higher professional or managerial level, and the paraprofessional level. In addition to a review of some general considerations, the paper provides more detailed discussions of technological and organizational considerations. Technologies covered include reprography, word processing, computing, telecommunications, databases, and data storage technology, with sections on course elements, electives and career choices, and levels of instruction. Organizational considerations include the status of training schools and infrastructure requirements; validation of courses, including the role of professional associations, a common training system, and the questions of training abroad; technological equipment in training schools; and a pedagogy for technical training. A summary and conclusions, notes and references, and an 82-item bibliography are included. (THC)
