The main objective of this work is to try to identify the common grounds existing between archives, library and information studies from which a core curriculum could be derived for the professionals in the three fields. The underlying concept in building up such a core is that the above areas must be viewed as a whole within the information spectrum. The historical development of librarianship is taken into account as well as the early education provided for librarians in England, United States and Brazil up to modern times when technological and social innovations have brought about changes in the information services, practices and procedures which have obviously had a direct effect on the educational patterns of members of the profession.
