India's First and Largest Social Network for Librarians'
There is a no uniformity among different recruitment's, KVS called some posts with B.Lib, Some other institutes are calling for MLISc, while some other asking for a Diploma in Library Science. All these are ruining the future of LIS profession. Due to lack of uniformity in recruitment's, professionals are unable to apply for different categories of posts. Most of the departments of Library and Information Science are offering MLISc as a two year integrated course while some other are offering BLISc and MLISc as one year separate course. There should be some uniformity regarding all these.
Thanks, Hoping for your suggestions.
I strongly agree with your post.
In kerala librarian qualification in Government colleges is 10 standard+6 Month certificate shameful for Professionals at the same time Aided colleges Recruits UGC qualified Librarians . Discrimination
I also agree with your opinion. Most of the departments of Library and Information Science are offering MLISc as a two year integrated course while some other are offering BLISc and MLISc as one year separate course. There should be some uniformity regarding all these.
its so Serious ,
The library science degree awarded by different universities / Organization are changed their title as Masters of Library Science, Masters in Library and Information Science, MSc. Information Science, Documentation Science .e.t.c . Due to this nomenclature of our subject, candidates are facing difficulties while applying for various post under Universities DRDO, ISRO ,e.tc . if it is an online application most of the time we can see the two options , Like masters in library science or Masters in Library and information science . Those who got degree in Information Science , Associaship , Documentation Science are getting difficulties , if there is no option like equivalents . Here another thing if it is equivalent to the said degree you have to produce an equivalency certificates. For that you have to follow up the universities and the concerned authorities .
Those who did integrated course in Library Science are may not able apply some post , because they may asking BLISC.
I dint understand in India one university offering one course is not recognized/ equivalent with other university . The answer is simple if all the university courses are recognized the university may going to lose the fees paying for the certificates and all.......
Here only one thing we can do appeal our different Library association to come forward and do the needful at the earliest
Degree or Diploma is not so important, Knowledge play an important part to success in Competition.
Knowledge is important for Post-Employment, but degree is important for Pre-employment, we have more challenges in a pre-employment (getting a job, fulfilling their educational requirements, etc.) than Post-Employment
