Abstract

It is proposed that university education for library and information professionals has become less autonomous in character and more systematised. A triangular model which describes a dynamic tension between professors, students and the state is developed by further analysis of the state and higher education: the public sector context, the teaching and learning environment in universities, students and the market and the impact of cognate disciplines. It is concluded that despite the pressures within the higher education system, academics have had an important role in developing the information and library studies field and will continue to be significant.
