LIS Education in Developing Countries for Strong Libraries and Strong
Development of strong societies is grounded on strong libraries providing
library and information services that meet information needs of members
from diverse communities they serve, children, youth, women, citizens,
scholars. Likewise, it is necessary that strong libraries relay on
librarians owning suitable knowledge and skills to play a successful role
in the new libraries and information settings, but without neglecting the
local characteristics of their communities. LIS Education in Developing
Countries Special Interest Group (SIG) for the past years has provided a
forum of collaboration, providing valuable opportunities to share

build strong libraries supporting strong societies development.
