Do library schools actually teach what librarians need to know?

Hiring Librarians (www.hiringlibrarians.com), the blog about hiring librarians, is working with Hack Library School (http://hacklibschool.wordpress.com/) to attempt to settle that age-old question, "do library schools actually teach what librarians need to know?"

If you're someone who hires librarians and would like to weigh in, please take the survey at http://tinyurl.com/hiringlibschoolsurvey

Keep an eye on Hiring Librarians for initial results, which will be posted in the next week or so.
