Abstract: Our aim here is to identify current educational needs of new librarians for the purpose of usable comparison with the continuing educational offerings available nationwide. To this end we have reviewed a variety of available resources with an eye toward key points that might apply specifically to our project. Of course we have not found it possible to be comprehensive. The literature on training and education for new librarians is plentiful, and so we have chosen to sample it carefully rather than trying to read everything. What follows might therefore be described as a selective review of the literature.
