Can college Librarian become Nodal officer in various committees?
Faculty have 16 hour teaching load. But librarian has 40 Hour word load in a week. So can college Librarian become Nodal officer in various committees?
I also want to know answer to this question. In my institute I am involved in number of committees.
Dear Ms. Uma Rani Sharma,
Thanks for your post.
I have gone through your post and it is true that Librarians remain engaged for 40 hours a week.
I just wonder why you intend to take up additional work/responsibility AFTER 40 HOURS OF HARD WORK every week!!
I have worked in different categories of Libraries but I associated myself with extremely limited number of committees as they used to 'eat up' my time for the library. Never-the-less, it will propel your junior staff to get themselves associated with activities beyond library duty and the responsibilities to running the library properly will be upon your shoulder!! However, if it helps in increasing scores for API, you can certainly go for some of them but make it sure that your Principal or Academic Council Members and your GB takes it affirmatively and most importantly whether it creates negative impact among the students because of your absence from the library or resulting any shortfall in rendering the job for which all of us are employed.

Yes. You can work as a Nodal Office in any committee of the college it depends upon your principal.
