LIS Community Invited to Provide Feedback on Draft of “IFLA Guidelines for Professional Library and Information Science (LIS) Education Programmes”

From a Post on the International Federation of Library and Information Association E-Mail List IFLA-L:

The IFLA Building Strong LIS Education Working Group invites the library and information science (LIS) community to provide feedback on the draft IFLA Guidelines for Professional Library and Information Science (LIS) Education Programmes by completing a feedback form AND/OR attending an online forum. The Guidelines serve as a framework for LIS education programmes and assist stakeholders in planning, developing and assessing the quality of LIS education and identify the knowledge areas an LIS professional should have to practice and continue to develop. It has been created to be applicable at any level of higher education.

We would appreciate commentary (e.g., strengths, gaps, etc.) on each section of the Guidelines, its use as a tool for the development of quality in LIS education, and its potential for adoption, support, or promotion to enhance the quality of LIS education locally and globally.

Please complete the feedback form at go.illinois.edu/LISEsurvey by March 31, 2021.
