Education for Librarianship: Some Persistent Issues
Grogan, D. J.
Education for Information, v25 n1 p5-26 2007
Throughout the hundred years history of education for librarianship some issues have been discussed again and again without agreement being reached. A number of these are quite central to the problem of education for a profession: the desirability (or otherwise) of professional schools; the control of education by professional bodies; theory vs. practice; fieldwork; the "core" curriculum. [To mark the 25th Anniversary edition of "Education for Information", editors re-visited articles published in the inaugural issue "to look again at them through the telescopic lens of a quarter century and to ponder how much has changed and how much has remained constant in educational issues relating to information studies." This article is a reprint of EJ314104.]
