Abstract: The knowledge system of LIS & Archives Management have undergone a long period of development, and its first-level discipline has been renamed "information resource management". As a first-level discipline name, information resource management highlights the characteristics of the times, covers the entire process of the field of library, information and archives, and opens up space for new fields. It is a concept that keeps pace with the times and integrates domestic and foreign information practice. After the renaming of the first-level discipline, an important issue that the academic community needs to solve is how to strengthen the construction of new majors. I suggest that both postgraduate and undergraduate levels can be considered comprehensively. At the postgraduate level, majors can be set according to the original secondary disciplines, or the connotation of information resource management, or a combination of the first two methods, which can not only retain the original secondary disciplines, but also contain new majors. At the undergraduate level, the major name of library and archives can be renamed as information resource management or information management to promote the connection between the undergraduate catalog and the postgraduate catalog.

Key words: Information Resource Management, First-level Discipline, LIS &, Archives Management, Discipline development, Discipline planning
