Abstract:This research study justifies Asian informatics as an emerging area of research in the information field (iField) and demonstrates its potential to facilitate diversity of library and information science (LIS) education in the U.S. by offering a cross-cultural perspective in this increasingly multicultural information age. Providing a critical analysis of the iField doctoral education in the U.S., this paper demonstrates the needs and benefits of integrating Asian informatics as part of the LIS curricula, urging LIS education to raise cultural awareness in information studies.
