Strategies For Regenerating the Library and Information Profession, 2009, vol. 139
Professional training and workforce entry profiles of Library and Information Science graduates from Spain are analysed. For this purpose 105 alumni who had graduated from the Library and Information Science (LIS) Diploma course at the University of León between the years 1993 and 2007 were surveyed and the re-sults analysed in order to identify further professional training undertaken, pro-fessional profiles, and professional career paths. These results were compared with those obtained from a series of interviews conducted with information profes-sionals employed in León, and with results of another survey of professionals working in other regions in Spain. The aim was to improve the LIS degree curricu-lum at the University of León.
