This report presents the background and rationale to the collaborative research project, which was born from the fundamental belief that there was a nexus, a deep connection, or indeed a series of connections, between education, curriculum, recruitment, retention, training and development that was necessary to sustain and develop the LIS workforce in Australia. The neXus project, supported by ALIA, CAVAL and QUT, sought to collect data that would begin to inform the profession about the issues it faced in terms of workforce planning as well as presenting snapshot of the profession in 2006.
