This paper explores two potential barriers to joint “LAM” programs of education andresearch: differences in the organizational locations of departments and schools of LIS andMuseum 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 UnitedStates, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. A bibliometric survey wasalso carried out to gauge the extent to which LIS and MS scholars based in Australia publish incommon journals, conferences proceedings and books.
