INTRODUCTION


This programme is intended to create a cadre of
school librarians who should make a significant
contribution to the delivery of quality education
at the primary and secondary levels. Graduates
from the programme will be dually qualified in
Education and Library and Information Studies
both of which are essential to function effec-
tively in the educational setting. Knowledge of
librarianship will assist professionals with the
administration of the library and equip them with
the ability to select and organize resources as
well as guide others in their use. The education
component is also necessary for effective per-
formance in the school environment as the librar-
ian's responsibilities include the planning, teach-
ing and evaluation of information skills and in-
teracting with faculty by working cooperatively
with teachers to integrate the library into the cur-
riculum. This requires proper understanding of
the curriculum so as to match its various ele-
ments with resources in the library.

Qualifications for Admission

To be eligible for admission to the programme,
applicants must:

* have satisfied the matriculation requirements
of the University
* have '... 1,11 completed a three-year
Teachers' College Diploma at a satisfactory
standard. Such applicants with the appropri-
ate professional experience in education will
be eligible for exemption from up to 30
credits of the programme which is designed
primarily for the training of school
librarians.

Length of Programme

Since the applicants for this programme will
have received an exemption of 30 credits, they
should be able to complete the programme in a
minimum of four semesters full-time.





yearlong course which will be undertaken in the sec-
ond year of study and can relate to any topic in librari-
anship (although it is expected that the focus will be on
school libraries). Please consult the Programme Coor-
dinator in the Department of Library and Information
Studies, for more information on this matter.

Fieldwork

Supervised fieldwork in approved libraries and other
information units is a compulsory component of the
degree programme. Degrees are awarded only after
fieldwork has been satisfactorily completed. For this
programme, you are required to complete six weeks
practical work in a library at the end of the first
academic year. The Department assumes the respon-
sibility for placing students in organized libraries, su-
pervised by professionals. Such placements take into
consideration the student's past experience, stated
areas of interest and the availability of appropriate
openings in the libraries.

The Department does not assist students financially
during this period of practical training and the host
libraries are not required to pay stipends. Students
should therefore budget for all costs consequent on
fieldwork placement.

Students are expected to submit a detailed fieldwork
report of a satisfactory standard by the end of the sec-
ond week of the third semester. It is recommended
that they keep a diary of activities which will form a
basis for the report as well as provide a source for
ideas for their study.
