Abstract


Competency areas for school librarian have been identified as: knowledge of the broad context of the information environment, information seeking, information architecture, information organization and access, information services, sources and production, information management and employability skills and attributes which are broadly classified as generic and specific skills. The training of school librarians and the content of the curriculum become very important. The paper discusses the curriculum for training school librarians at the Centre for Educational Media Resource Studies and its relevance to development of the identified competencies highlighted earlier.
