Course Overview

The world has evolved to an age where information technology and information explosion are here with us. There is therefore need for information professionals to acquire higher and relevant qualifications and skills for libraries and other information centres. It is due to this need in our country that the Bachelor of Library (B. Lib.) programme has been introduced. The techniques of library services have made great advances during last few decades with the result that the libraries are better planned, organised, equipped and administered, the book-stocks are more effective and better arranged and the readers are given increased facilities and greater assistance

The Bachelor of Library programme is a structured professional and discipline-specific curriculum. For all this, an elaborate planning in every field demands specialised training and so also in librarianship. A systematic training for personnel in modern libraries has become an absolute necessity to meet the demands.
