This paper presents ﬁndings of a qualitative investigation of the employer-identiﬁed knowledge and skills required of professionally trained staﬀ in the galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) sectors. Six group interviews and six individual interviews were conducted with Directors or their representatives from GLAM institutions in major and regional cities in Australia. The interviews were analysed according to the institution type, and the knowledge and skills discussed. The ﬁndings are situated within a wider conversation about the convergence of GLAM institutions, proposing that LIS education programs may have an opportunity to adapt their current courses to meet the needs for collaborative skills and knowledge in this sector.
