A Call to Infuse Biographies of Asia-Pacific LIS Giants into the Curriculum

Brendan Luyt / Alton Chua
Published Online: 2008-01-07 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/LIBR.2007.69

In this article we argue that LIS education in the Asia-Pacific region needs to develop an appreciation of the role inspirational and communicative pedagogies could potentially play in providing key leadership skills. Furthermore, we suggest that one way to do this is through biographical narratives. At the end of the article we provide three examples of librarian biographies that provide a number of important lessons about the profession for future librarians.
