Overview

Sci/Tech Librarianship: Education and Training examines how technology is changing and influencing library and information science curriculums for undergraduates and graduates and the ongoing training of library professionals. You’ll find suggestions on how to better prepare students for a career in the information sciences and keep professionals in the field up-to-date on current technology and resource skills. Sci/Tech Librarianship will help you teach students and staff the information they need to be successful librarians who offer the best services to patrons.

Covering the specific disciplines of chemistry, health sciences, and geoscience, Sci/Tech Librarianship offers you current research and strategies for expanding students’and professionals’knowledge of technical or scientific librarianship. From this book, you'll learn what other professionals in the field are doing to keep up with technological and informational advances, such as:

  • examining new fields of concentration offered in the School of Information Sciences at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, such as information systems and technology and electronic publishing, and how they will better prepare students for a career in sci/tech librarianship
  • integrating the Internet into the classroom by providing Internet-related assignments and adding the Internet to the class syllabus
  • implementing new courses and degree options for chemical information specialists at Indiana University that will help students meet suggested Special Libraries Association (SLA) recommendations, such as being knowledgeable in a specific content area, being able to critically evaluate information resources, and specializing subject knowledge appropriate for the business or client
  • educating engineering information professionals by incorporating an understanding of engineering literature and its use to patrons and physical and virtual information services into coursework
  • discussing desirable qualifications for geoscience librarians with professionals in the field to find out how undergraduate and graduate students can become successful geoscience librarians

    Included in Sci/Tech Librarianship is a detailed history of the significant and dramatic changes that have taken place over the past 40 years in the education and training of librarians. This will help you recognize how methods of teaching information have developed and offers suggestions on teaching sci/tech librarianship now and in the future. Containing bibliographies that will enable you to do your own research on specific topics, Sci/Tech Librarianship will help you teach current and useful methods that will improve the skills of students or professionals and enhance the amount of resources available to patrons.
