Attitudes and beliefs of librarians in Germany and the USA: a comparative study

Stefan Kramer
The purpose of this study is to understand, compare, and contrast professional experiences, attitudes, and beliefs among personnel in academic libraries in the USA and in Germany. Notable findings include differences in: respondents’ professional backgrounds; services offered by, and perceived adequacy and support of, respondents’ libraries; and views of the library profession and its future. Future studies could extend these comparisons to librarians in other countries, beyond Germany and the USA.
