Abstract: [Possession of a higher University Degree is necessary for appointment to the higher posts of large State, Public and University Libraries. Professional training for these as well as the posts of Library Assistant is got by probationary service. The Royal Library gives a three months' training and holds examinations to prepare candidates for service in special libraries. A four-week training course in documentation is also given at the Royal Institute of Technology once in a year. For service in Public Libraries, training is given by the State School of Librarianship; period six months at present; likely to become one academic year. A Continuation Course of about two months on specialized topics in Library Science is also periodically given jointly for Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland. The Stockholm City Library has got its own training school and examination for its staff. Short Correspondence Courses are also given to part timed workers in small local and study-circle libraries.]
