      This paper chronicles the history of LIS education in Macau and profiles the current situation. It then goes on to highlight the problems arising from the present situation and to analyze the reasons for the absence of a formal LIS school in Macau. Three options to move forward with the aim of providing a formal and quality LIS education in Macau are proposed. The advantages and disadvantages of these three options are examined and one option considered the most practicable is suggested for adoption.
