Caught between university administrators and a vocal profession, library schools are in the position of having to satisfy two sets of expectations that have become increasingly incompatible. Margaret Stieg focuses on the issues that face library and information science educators as they're caught in the middle. Her extended discussion of the present condition of library and information science education in the accredited schools present issues, buttressed by the facts, necessary to conduct an informed debate. The book begins with an examination of two fundamental questions: what is an information professional and what place does technology have in the world of librarianship? Topics covered are the pressure on faculty to excel as scholars; the need of the workplace and the requirements for admission; and the views of a library administrator on educational needs. The challenges to library education are great and its academic setting is a mixed blessing. Stieg sorts out the issues and suggests ideas for revitalizing library education that are consistent with professional practice and academic responsibilities.
