Abstract

This research work examines the prospects and challenges of LIS education worldwide and introduces the doctoral fellowship program, Cultural Heritage Informatics Leadership (CHIL), launched by the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) of University of South Carolina. It describes the major features and outcomes of CHIL. The Fall 2011 CHIL fellows are interviewed in this regard; later on a structured interview is also conducted with CHIL fellows. Initial findings of the interview indicate that the learning objectives and professional backgrounds of the selected fellows harmonize with the outcomes and targets of the CHIL program. The paper also specifies that CHIL is a great tool to disseminate information literacy globally and diffuse LIS education, particularly in developing nations, more consistently.
