Exploring potential barriers to LAM synergies in the academy: Institutional locations and publishing outlets

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review

Abstract

This paper explores two potential barriers to joint “LAM” programs of education and research: differences in the organizational locations of departments and schools of LIS and Museum Studies (MS), and differences in the publishing outlets used by LIS and MS academics. An environmental scan of LIS and MS programs was conducted to ascertain the extent to whichthe two sets of programs were based in different universities and disciplinary units in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. A bibliometric survey was also carried out to gauge the extent to which LIS and MS scholars based in Australia publish in common journals, conferences proceedings and books.
