An 8-year study of selected graduate library school programs, the state of the profession, and the needs of libraries reveals the necessity for educational reform. Three principal questions confront the profession: What is the responsibility of professional education to the library profession, its students, and society? How does the present system measure up to the accepted functions and responsibilities of professional education? And What reforms are needed to improve library education and bring it closer to accepted professional standards? Examination of standards and actual practice suggests major shortcomings in library education although it is fundamentally sound as it has evolved to the present. Principal reforms needed are reduction of the number of accredited graduate programs, lengthening and enrichment of master's programs, limitation of enrollment to highly qualified and motivated applicants, improvement of the quality and relevance of graduate programs, extension of graduate library schools' responsibility to programs in continuing education, strengthening the accreditation process as an instrument of reform, and systematization of reform through the establishment of a national forum for library education. A bibliography of 110 references is provided. (Raa)
