Abstract

This paper briefly introduces the general education system of Sri Lanka and the recent problems encountered with regard to the quality of education. With the objective of eradicating these problems, General Education Policy Reforms were brought in by the mid 1990s. These policy reforms are analysed in the paper together with two major World Bank funded projects which introduced radical changes to the general education system by implementing the recommended policy reforms. A special emphasis is laid on the unprecedented library development activities resulted from the policy reforms and finally the impacts of these General Education Policy Reforms and related activities on Library and Information Science education of Sri Lanka is discussed.
