Future Librarianship: Preparing for an Unconventional Career.
Lancaster, F. W.
Wilson Library Bulletin, v57 n9 p747-53 May 1983
Arguing that librarianship is an institutionalized profession (i.e., the library, rather than the librarian, has been the focus of attention), this essay notes the process of deinstitutionalization (information brokers, effect of computer technology), the future of the librarian, and education for the profession. Nine footnotes are given. (EJS)
