New IFLA Guidelines for Professional LIS Education Programmes

The International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) has released the Guidelines for Professional Library and Information Science (LIS) Education Programmes (adopted in April 2022).

"The development of the Guidelines were informed by the published literature, existing national and international standards, expertise of the BSLISE [Building Strong Library and Information Science Education], and consultation with LIS education and professional stakeholders across the globe (...)"

"The Guidelines serve as a framework for developing LIS education programmes, which stakeholders can apply in planning, developing and assessing the quality of LIS education and identify the knowledge areas LIS professionals should have in order to practice and continue to develop. They have been created to be applicable at any level of higher education. These Guidelines will assist programmes as they continue to adapt to the ever-changing needs of their community, as well as allow for greater degrees of mobility of LIS professionals across the globe."
