Fifty-five information science educators, administrators, and specialists from 22 countries assembled to discuss and debate the following themes: identification of characteristics of work done in the information sector; analysis of the educational needs of the information professional; the role of information professionals in national development; standards and measurements of supply and demand; qualitative, quantitative, and a mixture of methods; research of the "ideal profile" of information, library, and archives professionals; planning for future demands in the information sector. The objectives of the seminar were: (1) to define a conceptual and historical framework; (2) to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of different methods; (3) to report on experiences using different methodologies; and (4) to define the background questions posed to elicit observations and suggestions to make the process work. There were seven sessions: (1) "Approches conceptuelles" ("Conceptual Approaches"); (2) "Le marche de l'emploi du secteur de l'information dan les pays en developpement" ("The Information Sector Employment Market in Developing Countries"); (3) "Exemples concrets de planification de la main-d'oeuvre du secteur de l'information et de la communication" ("Concrete Examples of Labor Planning in the Information and Communications Sector"); (4) "Methodes quantitatives: Problemes et applications" ("Quantitative Methods: Problems and Applications"); (5) "Enguetes sur la mair-d'oeuvre et l'emploi dan le secteur bibliotheques" ("Investigations on Labor and Employment in the Library Sector"); (6) "Aspects methodologiques de l'evaluation de la main-d'oeuvre dans le secteur des sciences de l'information et de la bibliotheconomie" ("Methodological Aspects of Evaluation of the Work of the Information Science and Library Science Sector"); and (7) "Quelles consequences pour la formation" ("What Consequences for Education?")
