The authors of this chapter undertook a study to determine how well library school education is preparing students for electronic resources (ER) librarianship. The study provides an analysis of 100 ER librarian position descriptions to determine the requisite skills, training, and knowledge, and then an analysis of how well those skills are covered in the ALA-accredited Master’s level library programs through their course descriptions. The authors also examine ways to define, explore, and bridge the gap between the practical issues of the job and the theoretical approach to such issues as provided by library schools.
