Abstract:This study compares the perspectives of academic library administrators, library school educators, and academic librarians with respect to academic instructional librarianship. A 9-item questionnaire was administered to N=14 educators, N=10 library administrators, and N=13 instructional librarians. The survey asked about the character of instructional librarians, their job preparation, library school training, job duties, and assessment. Responses indicate a general agreement among the 3 populations regarding desirable skills and traits, but some disagreement exists between administrators and others regarding assessment. Results suggest that further consideration is needed about the nature and necessity of instructional librarian training in graduate library schools.
