A Resource Guide for Information/Library Education in Developing Countries.
Zahari, Noor Liza Ahmad
This annotated guide to resources on library and information science education in developing countries includes materials on library schools, training and education of library staff, and the progress of libraries in specific countries. Materials in the guide were selected from the indexes of Library Literature, Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA), and Information Science Abstracts. Most entries are journal articles, but a few theses, workshops, occasional papers and reports are included. All documents were published between 1980 and 1985 with the exception of a few articles published prior to 1980. The sources are listed in three categories. The first category contains citations for reference and general resource materials, including a directory and articles on librarianship, associations, education, and information resources management (IRM). Articles pertaining to courses, curricula, IRM, library schools, training of library staff (whether in a specific country or a region as a whole), are grouped together in the second category. The final category includes workshops, seminars, reports, and occasional papers on the progress and development of librarianship, including the role of Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). All materials are arranged alphabetically by author within sections. An appendix includes a list of 125 developing countries and the addresses of professional organizations and library schools cited in the resource guide. (THC)
