Library and Information Science Education in Support of Culture and Arts Education

Libraries and information services are essential for culture, arts, science, education, and other sectors, contributing to the sustainable development of individuals, organisations, communities and nations. Thus, libraries and cultural heritage institutions play a vital role in promoting and co-creating culture and arts education, supporting lifelong and life-wide learning, and providing spaces for intercultural dialogue. They are acknowledged in the draft UNESCO Framework for Culture and Arts Education for contributing to the Strategic Goal of “a. Access, inclusion, and equity in and through culture and arts education”, and to its Implementation Modality as “b. Learning environments”. The critical services to support culture and arts education are provided by appropriately educated and trained library and information science (LIS) professionals, who study in LIS programmes that teach excellence in professional practice
