Editorial - A Purpose-Driven LIS Education
Keywords:LIS curriculum, Library and information science education, Library education and training, Philippines
The professional “self-consciousness” of librarians and their position in their social world next to the other professions and disciplines has created a significant impact on the education and training of librarians. This particular consciousness centered on the need to acquire and perform specific and “expected” knowledge and skills has equally shaped the collective and individual perceptions of the LIS teachers, learners, and practitioners about their work, responsibilities, potentials, and even limitations. While library schools continuously provide their students the “tried and tested” approaches, as well as their expanded or improved versions, a rather short and seemingly basic question of “why?” still needs to be constantly raised.
