Abstract: Develop standards, guidelines, and other materials that foster best professional practice: Implementation of IFLA Guidelines for Professional Library and Information Science (LIS) Education Programmes, including formation of the Guidelines Stewardship Committee (SET, LTR and other BSLISE members), translation, promotional workshops, and consideration of procedural and declarative knowledge. The IFLA Professional Council endorsed the IFLA Guidelines for Professional Library and Information Science (LIS) Education Programmes on April 1, 2022. The Guidelines, now released, were authored by the LIS Education Framework Development Sub-Group of the BSLISE, under the leadership of Professors Clara M. Chu and Jaya Raju. The BSLISE (Building Strong Library and Information Science Education) working group is an initiative of the IFLA Section on Education and Training (SET), Section on Library Theory and Research (LTR), and the LIS Education in Developing Countries SIG. More details are at education-programmes-and-invitation-to-guidelines-session/ Of the four activities proposed for the 2021-2013 action plans, we have completed activities 1 and 3: 1. Formation of a Guidelines Stewardship Committee (Composition: SET, LTR and other BSLISE members) to respond to questions about the Guidelines and provide guidance, where necessary, on application of the Guidelines to specific contexts. The Guidelines Stewardship Committee has been constituted of members from SET, LTR, LIS Education in Developing Countries SIG and BSLISE members, all of whom represent the 6 IFLA regions. The committee is creating terms of reference, promoting the Guidelines, providing implementation support, coordinating translations, and working on other stewardship functions. 3. Workshops/webinars (min. 2/yr) to promote Guidelines. In 2021-22, we have held one workshop at the 2022 IFLA WLIC and gave four promotional presentations for the Iberian region, Pakistan, Philippines, and Southern Africa.
