Christina Neigel has brought to my attention a new entry on her blog, about the idea of accreditation for library technicians. Here is the link: http://libitufv.blogspot.com/2010/02/credentialling-uncredentialled.html.
I encourage people to go to her blog, read the post, and comment there, or respond to this list post and comment about the issue. Perhaps we can get some healthy dialogue going. I think there's a constructive debate to be had.
