Librarians and Lifelong Learning

Autor: Danie Malan, University of Pretoria - Academic Information Service, South Africa



Librarians of Academic and Public Libraries facilitate access to learning opportunities, enabling a learning culture and working partnership with students and researchers by providing information and bring together learners and learning opportunities. By doing this they must understand the principles of lifelong learning. This paper explores the theoretical issues of program outcomes through shared assessment of student and adult learning, the participation of the librarian and the mentor.
