Library Trends 46 (3) Winter 1998: The Roles of Professionals, Paraprofessionals and Nonprofessionals: A View from the Academy

 

Library Trends 46 (3) Winter 1998: The Roles of Professionals, Paraprofessionals and Nonprofessionals: A View from the Academy. Edited by Sue Easun.

This is the first of two planned issues on the topic of “Professionals, Paraprofessionals, and Nonprofessionals,” which will be edited by Sue Easun for Library Trends. This issue presents viewpoints on the topic from prominent academics. The second issue will feature the views of those who hold library positions as professionals, paraprofessionals and nonprofessionals.

What can a professional do that a paraprofessional cannot? What effect does the blurring of traditional distinctions between work roles and the encroachment of technology on traditional boundaries have on the objectives of professional education? The eight articles in this issue offer several points of departure, six by authors affiliated with graduate level institutions and two with community colleges.
