Education of Librarian and Information Professionals in the Pacific Islands.
Jackson, Miles M.
This survey was conducted in 1992 to determine the state of affairs in preparing professionals to work in the library and information services (LIS) field. The paper examines programs in Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Guam, and Hawaii. Information is given about the nature and length of college or university level degree programs and the numbers of students and faculty. Education for LIS on two levels is examined: (1) professional, which requires matriculation at an institution of higher education; and (2) sub-professional, which is aimed at training individuals for support roles in library and information services. (Contains 8 references.) (Author/KRN)
