Revised October 4, 2004

(Note: This bibliography is a work in progress. I have not reviewed every entry to determine its relevance. New citations will be added. Some entries will be dropped as I tighten the focus of my research.)

This bibliography represents my attempt to gather relevant literature related to changes in LIS education over the past fifteen years, for North American schools accredited by the American Library Association. This bibliography contains entries that treat the topic from the perspectives of both practitioner and educator. There are some entries that may fall outside of the “North American” criterion, or that may be older than fifteen years. I include them because I find them useful.

There are approximately 300 citations in this bibliography. About 25% of these entries are available online, and the URLs have been listed. About 100 citations have been added since I initially posted this bibliography. These new entries have been highlighted in red. (Note: “new” means new to this bibliography, and not necessarily a recent publication).

I would like to thank everyone who has submitted additional entries to me, and I would especially like to acknowledge Kathryn La Barre, a PhD student at Indiana University, for alerting me to so many good sources that I had overlooked.

If you have additions, deletions, or corrections to suggest, please e-mail me.
