Title:Problems of teaching library automation
Author(s):Divilbiss, J.L.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Library science --Data processing
Library and information science education
Abstract:I will not pretend that the sentiments expressed here are anything other than personal views arising from my teaching certain courses in the Graduate School of Library Science at the University of Illinois. It would be presumptuous to declaim on the problems of higher education in general, and boring to delineate problems specific to this particular school. Between those extremes, however, there are problems likely to be shared by other instructors at other schools, problems of some consequence to the library field in general. To deal with these problems candidly, I have not limited myself to "safe" topics such as the need for more money. If some of the "unsafe" topics give offense they should be understood in terms of bringing important issues to light.
