Abstract: Article prompted by an editorial published in Education for Information, 14, (2) July 1996, 83-4. Outlines some of the responses being made by library schools to changes affecting the library and information science (LIS) profession, including: changes in the place of information in society; availability and sophistication of information technology; changing nature of the information and communication industry; and the added complexities that these have brought to the task of maintaining and developing information services. Focuses on UK library schools’ activities aimed at: updating their curricula and courses to develop the necessary technical competencies; planning for the growing needs of management and leadership skills; determining how best LIS practitioners can assist.
