Library and Information Studies Education in New Zealand and Australia: Background, Issues, and Challenges
Chawner, Brenda
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v56 suppl 1 pS17-S26 2015
Professional library education in New Zealand and Australia has developed independently, with different structures for entry-level qualifications. Both countries face challenges in continuing to offer high-quality programmes, in part due to the distribution of students relative to the providers. This paper outlines the LIS qualifications and characteristics of the providers in each country, followed by a discussion of issues the programmes face in remaining relevant in the future.
