Abstract:This paper presentation highlights how truly international is library and information science (LIS) education in the United States and Canada based on content mapping of “global” intersections in the LIS curriculum. The exploratory mixed-methods study reports on occurrence of varied synonymous/related terms (e.g., diversity, global, international, multicultural, world) in bibliographic course titles and course descriptions on the webpages of 48 graduate programs in the United States (3787 courses) and five in Canada (487 courses). Evidence-based potpourri of best practices and course case studies help develop a roadmap for LIS programs to integrate international/global content in their curricula beyond isolated, ad hoc individual program-based efforts.
