ALA | Preparing Tomorrow's Professionals

excerpt: "It is essential that new graduates entering academic libraries have a solid grounding in the scholarly communication process. Scholarly communication has, of course, been part of the coursework in LIS schools for many years. Students have traditionally taken courses such as collection development where they learned how to acquire and evaluate books, journals, and other vehicles of scholarly communication. This type of preparation is still essential, but in an era when the process of scholarly communication is being transformed, it is not sufficient."
