The Future of LIS Education

Viv Barton, ALIA Vice President (President-elect) has chosen education as the theme for her Presidential year, from May 2020 – May 2021.

We have produced a short paper and survey (survey closed on 7 February 2020) in order to assess our current education position and the size of the gap between where we are now and our vision. We will be inviting employers and educators to come together at the ALIA Education Summit on 1 October 2020, to consider some of the big questions about LIS qualifications, ongoing learning, and what it means to be a professional.
