Subject: ALCTS Role of the Professional in Academic Technical Services DG

The Role of the Professional in Academic Technical Services Discussion
Group invites you to our upcoming session at ALA Midwinter, Sunday
January 31, 2-4 p.m., at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Room 103C.

TOPIC:  Library Schools and Education of the Technical Service

Are library schools keeping pace with the technical service needs of the
workplace?  Are the curricula incorporating sufficient technical services
courses and are the courses meeting the needs of today's graduate?  What
do employers look for in technical service job applicants at both the
entry level and at the higher level?  How can libraries work with library
school educators to help develop the curricula necessary to assure
excellence in technical services in the future?  How do practicing
librarians keep administrators informed and cognizant of the continued
need for strong technical services backgrounds in the librarians
responsible for those areas?

The session will be comprised of three presentations that address these
and related questions, followed by a discussion hour.
