Abstract:
Seen from an international point of view, the German LIS structure is of many reasons a very special one. Understanding the system, one has to gain insight into the political structure, the hierarchical system, and the salary system for civil servants. Up to the present, library education and training are more or less characterized by a special German way. Various educational and training programs on school, university and university college level are available. The different certificates open the way to different career paths in the LIS sector. In addition to that, the Bologna Declaration causes vital changes in the European university system in general and in that of Germany in particular. This contribution outlines the change from the old to the new paradigm in Germany in an international Context and pinpoints some actual problems.
