  • 2. The city of Lyon Lyon is one of the largest French cities, the capital of the Rhne- Alpes, and the department of Rhone. It has about 472 330 inhabitants. The Rhne-Alpes Region is home to some 400 municipal libraries, 8 dpartement lending libraries and 5 public libraries with heritage collections as well as large university libraries.

  • 4. Library and Information Science in France There are in France, professional qualifications in Information Science at several levels: the level known as the first cycle corresponds to a training course for senior technician for two years, the second cycle corresponding to the levels of undergraduate and masters and the third cycle with a professional option and one for the doctorate. Offering courses in France is out of balance: a greater number of students take technical courses, while employers require higher skill levels. Another problem is that only a small number of students choose the path of the research in the short term could lead to ashortage of teachers and researchers.
  • 5. The school Enssib, Frances national school for information and librarianship, trains library and information managers and carries out research in the fields of information science, librarianship and the history of the book. Enssib was founded in 1992, replacing the ENSB (National School for Librarians), which was established in 1963 and transferred to Villeurbanne, close to Lyon, in 1974. In 1999 Enssib merged with the Institute for Librarian Training, thereby becoming the only national establishment for the training of category A library staff. Enssib is directly administered by the Ministry for Higher Education and Research. The director is Anne-Marie Bertrand.
  • 6. International Relations Enssib has long been recognized abroad for its expertise in the specialist field of libraries and information science. It also has the additional virtue of directly addressing an audience of library professionals and teacher-researchers specializing in information. A further distinctive feature is enssibs Masters courses for students and civil servants. Its plan for the period 20072010 stresses the structuring and redefining of its avenues of international activity.
