Field names on these sites are slightly different, but not enough to after reading this article did not know what's going on.

For starters, it is advisable to briefly introduce the field. Study librarianship means of practical and theoretical knowledge and skills for the provision of library services. They consist of the organization, sorting and searching of library funds, work with electronic information systems, databases, etc. It is not only a library, an important role to work with information as such.

The application is quite wide – a graduate course can work as a librarian, but also as a bibliographer, editorial staff, spokesman of libraries, library collections manager, information analyst, consultant or manager, a carpenter … (It should be noted that not every graduate will find work in the field that he studied.)

There apparently have no such philosophy. Yet she was a freshman, most of us are surprised at how much we have to work with computers. The quality of teaching, I generally satisfied (teachers, technical support ,…), but I think that learning languages ​​should be there to give more space, some are there to teach the advanced level. For some of the lectures would not hurt if they added seminars that teaching was more practical. I think the difficulty of field does not matter only on the actual substance, but also on teachers' demands. And those on a case by case differ radically. Some of us really want. Overall, I but our study nezařazovala the toughest …

Note: Most of the faculties in making the admission control test of study skills. The final location of the candidates represents so-called percentile – This number indicates what percentage of candidates achieved success compared with others. Eg.: If I had a percentile of TSP 66, it means that I was better than 66 percent of their colleagues. The same system used by such company and Scio.
