IFLA BSLISE Working Group (2018). Building Strong LIS Education: A Call to Global and Local Action – An IFLA BSLISE Working Group White Paper. Cape Town: University of Cape Town Libraries. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.15641/0-7992-2542-6 (forthcoming 29th August 2018)
The White Paper is the culmination of 1.5 years of BSLISE work. It presents an action plan informed by the findings from an international survey to learn the differing qualification requirements (education, certification, and 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.
