As the field of library and information science (LIS) grows increasingly interconnected on account of transborder mobility and international collaborations, the transferability of LIS credentials takes center stage. The knowledge of qualification and certification requirements become paramount for developing credential equivalencies across geographic borders and quality assurance standards for relevant and meaningful LIS education. To address these issues, the proposed international panel will present selected results of the international survey, conducted by the IFLA BSLISE Working Group in the spring of 2017, thus injecting a timely international dimension into the conference discussion of the expanding LIS education universe.
