The IFLA Building Strong LIS Education (BSLISE) is going to launch a new project for LIS students. The first online session will be held on 19 March 2021.

Theme: Library and Information Science (LIS) Student Voices: Global Peer-to-Peer Dialogue


The proposed project will connect library and information science (LIS) students all over the world to communicate and discuss the present and future of the LIS field. The peer-to-peer exchange among LIS students creates a platform to highlight experiences, engage ideas and express opinions about LIS education and the profession — valuable insights for an evolving field and for their own professional future. It will develop an international network for LIS students to share experiences and perspectives, connecting the local to the global. While the primary audience is LIS school students, the project should be of interest to LIS educators, practitioners and stakeholders.

Date/time: Friday 19 March 2021, 14.00 – 15.00 (CEST)
