Talk given at the BOBCATSSS 2015 conference - http://www.bobcatsss2015.com/.
This presentation looks at the PhD as a contribution to an information professional’s career. After sketching the history of the LIS PhD, it samples the rather heated current debate (from blog content) and offers some disturbing personal insights into the quality of PhD research worldwide. Finally, it sets out useful approaches for anyone intending to enrol for a LIS PhD.
