Abstract:As a newly emerging and one of the fastest growing fields of study, cybersecurity/information assurance has plenty to offer in terms of teaching and research. If Library and Information Science (LIS) schools are to take advantage of this fast growth in the field by expanding their program and/or course offerings, thereby increasing their enrollments, and, indeed, provide their students with opportunities to be able to take advantage of the demand for skilled manpower in cybersecurity/information assurance, it is imperative for them to systematically approach the inclusion of courses and/or programs to their curricula. A component of this systematic approach is a closer examination of programs, concentrations, and courses in cybersecurity/information assurance currently offered at similar or peer LIS schools in order to identify best practices and gaps. The study reported here is a small but important part of this effort.
