Library Spirit!: The Library School Experience and Early Professional Work During Progressive Era Texas and Illinois. A Reader's Theatre Performance.
Roy, Loriene
This document is a portrait, scripted in a four-part reader's theater format, of the educational experiences and early professional work of librarians who emerged from formalized library education programs at the University of Illinois and the University of Texas in the years between 1897 and 1913. The script was derived from student journals and correspondence between students, faculty, and employers as well as from school records. The speakers usually remain in third person and only seldom assume the voices of individual characters. The script contains information about educational philosophies, curriculum, enrollment, training, the nature of the librarian's job at that time, and the controversies and successes encountered on first jobs.
