Abstract

There has been a good deal of grumbling going on in my country at the way in which librarians are trained for their profession. No one seems to be satisfied with the current state of affairs but of all the unhappy groups none speak with greater vehemence nor more fervidly than the special librarians. ‘If other professions,’ says a prominent music librarian, ‘ran their educational systems with no more regard for specialization than librarianship does, one shudders to think of the state our society would be in.’
