Results of a 2011 survey of 228 library and information science students at two universities in China enrolled between 2003 and 2006 show that respondents generally had low satisfaction with the curriculum during their university study. Also, half of the respondents indicated that there was little relevance between the curriculum they undertook and their current vocation. In summary, the library and information science graduates believe that reform of the library and information science curriculum system is imperative. This article examines these student perspectives and offers some suggestions on what some of these reforms should be. The suggestions include deletion of duplicate content in courses, addition of more relevant courses, and improvement of the teaching quality and course content.
