An examination of the curriculum of the professional librarian [El currículum de la profesión bibliotecaria; Una aproximación] Article uri icon


  • The work aims to describe, define and explain the etymological and operational concepts of the term library, noting that the library is the source of the libra-rian's work, which over time has become a profession with its own conceptual, technical, theoretical and scientific framework. In broad terms, the author presents the work of the librarian from the business standpoint, including administrative tasks, technical organization and service to the public; and offers a proposal for drafting and implementing the course of study for librarianship degree programs. Moreover, the author explains some values and principles that underpin the need to steadily improve the preparation and training of professionals in library and information science.
