Abstract:
This presentation was given in Session 3.1 on Wednesday, January 7, entitled "Forecasting the Future and Formulating Strategy", at the ALISE 2004 Conference in San Diego, CA. It contains a survey on PhD students in some LIS programs. The research analyzes the population of the students being surveyed: their background before entering a PhD program, their concentrations of research in the program, and their expectations for a job in varied fields. It finds that most of the students are not library science focused. Hopefully, the survey will be able to provide suggestions for LIS programs to reconsider their curricula and training strategies. Two files are presented here. The Powerpoint file (20 slides) is a concise version of the Word file.
