The future of library and information science education in Australia: discussion paper

Creator
Australian Library and Information Association
Description

In November 2019, the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) published The Future of LIS Education Issues Paper to inform a sector-wide discussion about the current state of professional education: the needs going forward, and the challenges we face in trying to identify and deliver the best outcome.
 
Following the publication of the issues paper, ALIA carried out a survey of members, and sought submissions and feedback from stakeholders and focus groups. This paper provides a summary of the themes which emerged during the consultation with the sector which has enabled work to start on three possible future scenarios. The scenarios will be presented to participants at the LIS Education Summit, which has been rescheduled from 4 May 2020 to coincide with ALIA Information Online 2021.
