Library Trends 34 (4) Spring 1986: Current and Future Trends of Library and Information Science Education

 

Library Trends 34 (4) Spring 1986: Current and Future Trends of Library and Information Science Education. Edited by George S. Bobinski.

The articles in this issue represent papers presented at the Library Education Centennial Symposium held at Columbia University on 27-28 June 1986. The symposium was hosted and held at the Columbia University School of Library Service and was sponsored by the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) with the financial support of the H.W. Wilson Foundation. An ALISE Library Education Centennial committee chaired by George Bobinski planned the symposium. The purpose of the symposium was to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the establishment of the first library school in the United States.

The articles in this issue on current and future trends cover a full range of topics from accreditation, to the role of ALISE, to philosophical issues in library and information science education. The MLS, the doctorate, and continuing education are covered. Both faculty and students are examined as is the place of library and information science education in higher education institutions. The current and future job market is reviewed. Finally, a futuristic look is taken at the next one hundred years.
