Abstract:
This article presents results from a survey designed to assess the relevance of library and information science (LIS) expertise - here defined as those topics typically, but not exclusively, taught in LIS programs - for museum professionals. The topics covered in this article are information representation, information organization and access, information management, computer technologies, digitization technologies, interactive technologies, information policy, evaluation methods, and collaboration initiatives. An online survey assessed the degree to which museum professionals possess skills in these topics, perform work in these topics, and consider these topics important for future study. The article examines the relative value of each topic for museum professionals, and discusses the importance of strengthening relationships between LIS and museum studies by better understanding the relevance of LIS expertise in museums.
