In the book's forward, Mrs. George Bush discusses her role in promoting literacy and literacy education.

These materials, prepared by invited experts, represent the school administrator's, reading teacher's, parent/citizen's, and library media specialist's perspectives on literacy and reading.

Library school preparation for academic and research librarianship : a report prepared for the Council on Library Resources by Lester Asheim( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to provide a generalized description of the scope and content of the courses currently offered in a sampling of leading library schools, this report is based on information submitted by 9 of the 15 library schools that were identified as top schools in a survey of library educators and administrators. The analysis of the schools' submissions focused primarily on masters' programs, with special attention to the relationship between what is being taught and what academic and research librarians feel should be taught. Because the schools submitted information in a variety of forms and varying degrees of completeness, a strictly quantitative summary was not possible. Topics discussed include: (1) traditional scholarly subjects; (2) traditional academic skills, including communication skills, foreign language skills, mathematical skills, and use of courses outside the school; (3) training in other professions; (4) traditional bibliographic skills, including cataloging and classification, reference and information sources, management and administration, general introduction to library and information science, and other required areas; (5) specialization in academic and research librarianship, including responsiveness to current developments, the expressed needs of the field, and continuing education; and (6) creativity and the ability to solve problems.
