Abstract:Early work in progress paper, reporting on questionnaire-based survey of students working with the new self-assessment professional development tool (Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB)) provided by the UK professional association (CILIP). Discussion of the sociology of professionalization identifies Wilensky’s Process of Professionalization as a useful starting point for discussion. Provides historical overview of the association’s seminal involvement in the creation of Library and Information Studies (LIS) as a discipline in the UK. Highlights the importance of the reflective practitioner within LIS education. The first in a series of papers that will explore the implementation of the PKSB within the academic setting in the three-year period 2014-2017.
