Colón-Aguirre, Mónica – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2019
Despite multiple calls for diversifying academia in general, and Library and Information Science programs (LIS) specifically, the number of faculty of color working in higher education remains low. This work presents the points of view and suggestions of a faculty member concerning the diversity dilemma in LIS. The work relies on personal…

Cooke, Nicole A. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2019
In this autoethnographic article I reflect on my experiences as a now-tenured faculty member of color, which have been punctuated by incivility, bullying, stress, and abuse. As part of reconciling several acute events, I came to a distinct realization of what I had been going through; I was able to name it, and I was able to articulate the…

This paper was produced as a collaborative project by a Progressive Librarianship class at an ALA-accredited Masters of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program located in Canada.

Richardson, John V., Jr. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
The author believes that Jesse Shera had the prescient ability to know the fads and fancies of higher education. Yet, some, if not many of the twenty-three titles he listed in 1969 as being useful to understand higher education, are not ones to readily reach for today. In this article, the author lists four successor titles as the ones he would…

Kent, Allen – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
The author was assigned the task to comment on the broad topic: "New sciences, technologies, and media--impact on education for librarianship (or libraries)."

Bates, Marcia J. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
Allen Kent was a pioneer in many aspects of library and information science (LIS), and yet, as this author reads Kent's 1977 article, there is not much in it that has become ancient, irrelevant history. The questions he discusses are still alive in the discipline in 2014, whether it is called LIS (library and information science), information…

Dunkin, Paul S. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
In this article the author discusses the evolution of the profession of librarianship and the compromise of educating librarians in schools instead of by apprenticeship. He poses a series of questions, some more rhetorical than others: (1) Is Technical Services an intellectual concept or an administrative device?; (2) Can the routines and rules of…

Schottlaender, Brian C. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
In this article, the author gives an overview of Dunkin's article on education in the library profession. He believes it is clear that Dunkin thought too much attention was focused on practice, and not enough on theory--though there was room, and need, for both. Dunkin poses a series of questions, some more rhetorical than others: (1) Is Technical…

Smith, Linda C. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
Cheney's paper was the first major article on the subject of teaching reference in American library schools. In the article, she addressed three questions: (1) Who is teaching reference?; (2) What is being taught?; and (3) How is it being taught? In this article, Linda Smith discusses how the teaching of reference has changed in the more than 50…

Roy, Lorienne – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
Robbins Carter's portrait of the librarian workforce is still true. According to the latest American Library Association (ALA) demographics, the profile of today's librarian is that of a white (87.1 percent) woman (80.7 percent) of middle age (57.1 percent, age 45 or older) (ALA, 2013). Despite these data, support for increased diversity is…

Wellstead, Peta – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
Much has changed in the information environment since the years of Harris' review. It is important to mention the significance of the impact of technology that has rendered the work of librarians and information workers almost unknowable to those teaching in the period 1965-1983. As a result of these reviews and technological changes, many…

Chu, Clara M. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
Student-centered learning was the pedagogical approach that was tried but found wanting in Charles Martell's classroom; the experience which he describes in his 1972 "JELIS" article. Persuaded by research accounts that student-centered teaching was more effective in stimulating critical thinking, he sought to apply it to enhance graduate…

Three categories within this literature are examined: studies of literacy and its sociocultural role; the history of the book; and the meaning of reading as an activity.
