Abstract [en]

LIS education takes place in an increasingly networked, global world. Yet library services are maintained through local practices. How can Library and Information Science (LIS) educators address the mutual interaction between practices on a local and a global scale, in particular in programmes devoted to digital libraries, the distributive Internet, and new media? In the presentation, we draw on examples from a master’s programme in Digital services to illustrate how we have tried to integrate three levels of scale – macro, meso (interpreted as national), and micro – in the programme. In particular, we emphasize the importance of 1) integrating the global phenomena and theories commonly associated with digital environments with local practices, for instance through working with existing services, organizations and resources, and 2) finding educational models that help the students make connections between the global and the local.
