Enduring Ideas: The Contribution of Margaret Trask to Education for the Profession
Browne, Mairead; Kirk, Joyce
Australian Library Journal, v53 n1 p19-29 Feb 2004
This article acknowledges and celebrates the contribution of Margaret Trask to education for beginning professionals in library and information work. It identifies four concepts or themes which underpinned the award courses developed and taught under Margaret's leadership, and examines how these themes have evolved over thirty years. Margaret played a leading role at a time when education for librarianship was in its early phase of development in Australia. She came to prominence in the 1970s when responsibility for provision was moving from the professional association, the then Library Association of Australia (LAA), to universities and colleges of advanced education, a move that had taken place already in the United Kingdom.
