Languages of publication
In the period shortly after the WWII, secondary schools in librarianship had a substantial part in the education of future library staff for libraries. The present article attempts to provide an insight into this particular period with the case example provided by the Cracow-based Liceum Bibliotekarskie (library specialized high school in the Polish educational system). The evaluation is mainly based on available archival material. The following aspects of the functioning of the school are discussed: creation, initial organization and management of the school, supervision within the structure of national educational system and the reasons behind its dissolution. In addition, core curricula, the school’s staff and the quality of education are discussed, as well as brief profiles of its pupils and graduates are provided. The article also presents brief profiles of the school’s directors and distinguished teachers. Though it is hard to say that the overall performance of the school can be unequivocally summarized, its merits and contribution to the educational system at the times of post-war scarcity of qualified librarians can hardly be overlooked.
