Education for Librarianship in the Nordic Countries
Placing the present situation within a historical and sociological context, six chapters show just how important the role of the traditional library system has been in shaping curricula, and how this still plays an important role in curriculum change. The first five chapters discuss Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. The final chapter discusses the changing labor market for library and information professionals and challenges for Nordic library education.
