Librarians are teaching in classrooms all over the world. A search of library literature reveals articles on academic library instruction programs in Asia, Oceania, South America, Africa, and Europe. This paper will examine the 20th Century literature that explores academic library instruction programs around the world with the exception of those in North America. Only those articles that are written in English from 1901-2000 indexed in ERIC or Library Literature are considered. As such, many relevant articles written in other languages have likely been excluded. This may also explain why some countries that use English as a primary language (Nigeria, New Zealand) are well represented while other non-English speaking countries (France) and regions (South America) are sparsely covered in this literature review. A different version of this paper appeared as "Library Instruction Outside of North America in the 20th Century," ERIC ED #464 647.
