Evaluation of the initial education of librarians

Three working groups for improvement ["conseils de perfectionnement"] were set up in 2000 by Enssib alongside the scientific council: one for the diploma of library conservation officers (DCB), one for the initial education of librarians and one for continuing education. The creation of these councils had been anticipated by the agreement of objectives for the period 1999-2002, accepted by the Ministry of Culture and Communication along with Enssib. The working group for the DCB and that for the initial education of librarians have each sent a report to Enssib's scientific council. It is an abridged version of these two reports that is published here.
