Education for Digitization: A Case Studyon Sharing E-Information Resources in University Library
This paper reported an international survey of library, information science (LIS), computer science faculty and websites, regarding digital libraries courses and curriculum at our institutions. We concluded that few universities currently offer courses on digital libraries while many universities have not developed Digital Library (DL) courses, even they are aware of the need to develop curriculum in this growing area of research and practice. The major aim of the paper is to present results from a survey on the current state of digital library education (DLE) in academic institutions. Additionally we examine the rationale and orientation for digital library education. We suggest several models that have emerged in the teaching of DLE and in incorporation of relevant topics into various curricula.
