The Future of Education for Librarianship: Looking Forward from the Past.
Woodsworth, Anne; And Others
The subject of this analytical bibliography is the future of education for librarianship. Its purpose was to cover English-language publications since 1980 and selected "classic" authors of the past, and to synthesize the trends and concepts that emerge. The first section presents a brief synthesis of each of the major issues/trends that emerged from the literature followed by an alphabetical list of the citations from which the analysis was drawn. The major issues identified are accreditation, certification, and standards; curriculum; continuing education; extended educational preparation; information science, information resource management, and related fields; interdisciplinary linkages; international perspectives; non-classroom experiences; recruitment and admission; specialization; technology; and theory versus practice. The second section contains an annotated bibliography of 167 items published after 1980 together with older landmarks in the field. Section three lists citations of works that were identified as potentially relevant but were not reviewed. (JLB)
