Title: Library Schools and Education of the Technical Services Professional: A Report of the ALCTS Role of the Professional in Academic Technical Services Discussion Group Meeting, American Library Association Midwinter Meeting, Philadelphia, January 1999.
Author: Grenci, Mary C.; Turvey, Michelle; Borneman, Dea; Letarte, Karen; Lubas, Rebecca L.; Nelson, Catherine
Abstract: Many technical services professionals feel that library school programs are not offering students the courses and/or content necessary to enter the profession in an entry-level technical services position. The presentations given at this meeting offered attendees the opportunity to hear the results of a recent research project on this issue as well as various viewpoints concerning library education in this part of the field. Most the presentations and the discussion focused on the education of professional catalogers. Speakers included Michelle Turvey, Dea Borneman and Karen Letarte, from Southwest Missouri State University; Rebecca Lubas, Catalog Librarian for Serials Documents at Ball State University; and Catherine Nelson, Head of the Serials Dept. at University of California, Santa Barbara.
