Title: i-Schools as a Natural Home for Digital Libraries Education
Author(s): Wildemuth, Barbara M.; Pomerantz, Jeffrey; Oh, Sanghee; Fox, Edward A.; Yang, Seungwon
Subject(s): i-schools Digital libraries Curriculum
Abstract: Given that digital libraries bring together technology, information, and the people using the information, it can easily be argued that i-schools should play a central role in educating DL professionals. This study examines the existing roles that i-schools play in DL education from two different vantage points: their offering of DL courses and their participation in a DL curriculum development project. In addition, we explore the potential to expand the iSchools Caucus by recruiting those schools that are active in DL education efforts (i.e., those that offer courses or participate in curriculum development) but are not yet members of the Caucus. based on the seven course syllabi available on the open Web, DL courses in the i-schools are further analyzed, in terms of the topics covered, the textbooks used, and the types of assignments used. From this analysis, we conclude that there is not yet a consensus on the topics covered or the assignment used in DL courses.
