International Survey of Entry Requirements for Library and Information “Professional” Practice

The IFLA Building Strong Library and Information Science Education (BSLISE) Working Group is conducting an international study to learn the differing qualification requirements (education, certification, individual credentialing system) for library and information “professional” practice in order to develop a better understanding of the equivalence of credentials and the role of LIS education.  We invite the LIS community to participate in this survey to provide information regarding professional qualification and certification in their country.  The results of this international survey will contribute to a better understanding of these practices and the equivalence of credentials globally.  It will also serve as the initial phase of an ongoing research project geared toward developing a framework to 1) assess the quality of LIS education, and (2) determine the transferability of LIS education, internationally.
