This paper explores the opinion of junior and senior library professionals working for various organizations in Pakistan on LIS curricula and seeks their suggestions to develop an effective and practicable curriculum. Survey research method was used to collect data from professionals through a structured questionnaire. The findings reveal that the LIS curricula offered by the library schools of Pakistan are not up to mark and flaws are observed everywhere, hence not meeting the challenges of the profession. But, to a large extent, the respondents were satisfied with the contents of the curricula with some reservations and apprehensions. They also gave some suggestions to modify and upgrade the curriculum to make it compatible with the market requirements. They also proposed to revise the curriculum periodically after taking the professionals working in the field in confidence.
