Education for librarianship in Greece
MetadataShow full item record
During the past 30 years various efforts have been made to stimulate improvements in the education and training of librarians in Greece. Workshops, seminars, and nonuniversity training courses have been offered in the past and remain the principal methods of instruction today. Although these programmes have been considered useful, they are not completely satisfactory, and the hope for a university-level school of librarianship continues to be expressed. The establishment of such a school has been formally suggested at various times, but little has come from such proposals. A review of these efforts indicates that the lack of progress may be due to circumstances beyond the direct control of librarians: the nature of the Greek educational system and the current pattern of staffing libraries. A proposal for dealing with the present needs of Greek librarians is offered as an interim solution.
