redballMEDIA LIBRARIANSHIP: CURRICULAR RESPONSES TO THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION 
      by Rebecca Adler
     "Revolutionary" is perhaps the only apt word to describe the effects the introduction of computer digital technology 
      has had on the profession, practice, and,consequently, training of the media librarian. The new situation has in fact 
      called for a virtually total revamping of the degree requirements in the field. This paper compares the respective 
      1989-90 and 1996-97 curricula in ten of the leading library schools in the country. Concluding remarks point to 
      some possible problematic aspects of the new curricula, and speculate on what the the future may hold for the 
      profession.
