Abstract: The IFLA Strategy guided SET's Action plan initiative with the Library Theory and Research Section (LTR) for Building Strong Library and Information Science Education (BSLISE). The map of global LIS education resulted from a worldwide survey, as did the proposed LIS education guidelines which are currently undergoing worldwide review. Both initiatives support IFLA's Global vision. SET proposed and coordinated the IFLA Division IV Webinar Series for LIS Students across the Division units. Its aim is to engage LIS students in an international dialogue with the IFLA community about the future of LIS. This collaborative project aligns with the IFLA Strategy. With proposals from 8 countries, three webinars attracted over 1900 registrants and 600+ attendees. IFLA's Global vision led to the creation of the IFLA Academy, a SET Summer School where professionals develop their skills to support the needs of a global society (e.g., using the UN SDGs as a framework). SET webpage is updated at least twice a month. SET has been growing its presence on social media. Since September 2020, SET has created accounts on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter to share news and post events, including webinars. Social media has been used to connect with LIS students through "The Student Spotlight," a BSLISE initiative to highlight the students involved in the BSLISE project, and the "Student Library Voice: Peer to Peer," a SET initiative to facilitate an LIS student network.
