Library School Proposal

Library School Proposal

Victoria University is to seek to establish a School of Librarian ship. The School would be responsible for conducting non-graduate courses leading to a Certificate in Librarian ship as well as graduate courses and advanced research.

At its Annual Meeting in July the University Council accepted a report from an ad hoc committee chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Dr I.D. Campbell.

The report referred to the desirability of training in librarian ship being conducted in one institution in Wellington, and endorsed the view that high level training and research could not be carried out without extensive university co-operation.

For this reason it was suggested that the university should assume responsibility also for the intermediate non-degree courses.

The University Council accepted the Committee's view that, with some modifications, the intermediate courses could be made acceptable as university courses.
