A media librarian's education: An assessment of the availability and need for specific training in media librarianship issues and practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article articulates the findings of two research studies. The first, a national survey, explores the educational background and current job responsibilities of media librarians. The second, a web analysis, assesses media-related curriculum components of accredited library and information science programs. Conclusions support anecdotal evidence that media librarians receive the majority of their education regarding media-related issues on the job.
