The content of museum and art curatorial studies courses offered by Australian universities was mapped against the 32 domain-specific “foundation knowledge, skills and attributes” (KSAs) required by ALIA, ASA and RIMPA. Most of the KSAs were covered by at least one course, though only about half were touched on by a majority. Few curriculum elements could not be mapped onto a KSA. The mapping and the literature suggest a fair degree of subject alignment between LIS and museum studies, but also clear differences of emphasis. Contextual differences affecting interpretation and application need further investigation.
