The convergence of libraries, archives, and museums presents critical challenges to professional education. This panel introduces early results of a survey that explores the formal and informal relationships among LIS, archival, and museum studies programs. These results will serve as a starting point for a discussion about the qualitative dimensions of these relationships and how they present opportunities and challenges for students, faculty, and the field of LAM education.
