As technological progress races on, the Library and Information Science (LIS) profession is continually faced with new challenges and new technologies to aid in the effective dissemination and use of information. This paper looks at the challenge and implications of expert systems technology for LIS. It will discuss in particular the possible contribution of LIS to expert systems development, in the light of a recent survey of 50 expert systems producers in the United Kingdom, conducted by the authors. It concludes that there is room and need for LIS skills in expert systems development teams, but that these skills may need to be augmented by more specific computing experience if LIS graduates are to have a realistic chance of employment in this area.
