Abstract: This paper critically explores the importance of culture, its relevance to, and the importance of its inclusion in course design particularly within the Caribbean context. The paper further argues for the design of a culturally sensitive library science course that provides a bridge to undergraduate studies for paraprofessional library staff within the English speaking Eastern Caribbean. Given the Caribbean’s geographic dispersion, its shared historical experience of colonialism, slavery and the cultural hegemony of developed countries, a focus on the preservation of culture is required and an online course is appropriate.
