The 4.0 industrial revolution encouraged millennial generation, icluding students of the Library and Information Science Study Program of Universitas Negeri Padang to prepare themselves not only in knowledge, but also equipped with skills, attitudes and characters. First, there are six factors that form the profile of the millennial generation of the students of library and information science study programs: (1) the disruptive mindset factor shapes the profile of the millennial generation 70.20%, (2) the connected factors form the millennial generation profile of 52.53%, ( 3) creative factors shape the profile of millennial students 69.70%, (4) confidence factors shape the profile of millennial students 62.29%, (5) readiness factors shape the profile of millennial students 60, 10%, and (6) spiritual factors forming the profile of millennial generation students 58.18%. Second, the challenge is the study program in improving student competency through revitalizing the curriculum oriented on new literacy (data literacy, technology literacy and human literacy). The opportunity is that study program studenst are already in the digital mass, cellphone, internet and android technology and information is no longer limited by distance and time.
