How a Library Professional especially females can earn like other professionals without having a job. How they establish their own way of working and work from home like teachers (Coaching Center), Doctors (Clinic), Is there any idea?
1) Please suggest how a Library Professional can earn by blogger?
2) After Retirement is there any source of income for professional if there is no pension scheme for employee?
Thank you so much for quick reply. I'm also interested to help our professionals to work from home, Dr. Barman if you require any assistance in this line, I'm always happy to help.
But how can register and how can earn money.
Agree with Mr. Aziz. Informational Professional has only knowledge and skill from that need to make money. Who come to you?? who is knowledge hungry.
In past Librarian require in Pharma or Biotech or software company. why bcos most of material books, journals are in hard copy and require person to handle and maintain even though it has no knowledge of pharma or software every company hire information professional.. Then come Floppy - CD/DVD and almost gone...
Now Today all publishing go digital no more work in physical library so every person in company can find whatever he want directly from internet and publisher without going to company library or near by big library. So library person in corporate only maintain on-line subscription and request from members. Now in digital age even any employee can buy any thing from Credit card from his desk without going to his company library.
Main question MONEY - where money come from - Mostly from Business ONLY . bcos they are generating money. Other are there like GOVT research, Organization , general people.
Business will compensate far more for your skill then educational and non-profit org or govt org.
For example above mention book is available at $10 , if any business person want it he will buy it from online. if available in india then he will buy from india. if available between 5-8 $ he will try there. BUT time is main factor for them to get it along with price. but if need in govt and edu institute every body know that they simply tern down the request to buy it or somebody give free then they will take it. General people always look for free, time dos't matter.
so your approch to industry and business to sal eyour skill can earn more money in less time.
I didn't read this book but in this week I will read it and tell you more from that.
Dear Ms. Manavta Jugeshh,
Many thanks for your yous and for addressing a really burning question. Indeed it is a matter of concern for many of us who do not have pension facilities and especially to all of us who joined Central Govt. Service on or after 01-1-2005.
As I see it, in case one has knowledge and aptitude and above all, the professional & mental abilities to adjust with changing concept of Library service, getting employment after retirement is not a very hard matter.
You can also develop a society with some like minded and highly qualified professionals and earn through consultancy and project jobs. However, you need to establish your identity & credibility as prerequisite during your professional career.
Earning by writing blogs is also a good option. But for both the two (Consultant/ Retired Librarian & Blogger) one needs to be highly knowledgeable and well informed in one hand, on the other s/he should be able to write FLAWLESSLY and LUCIDLY. Especially while addressing certain issues, one has to express the issue from others' points of views!!
Writing theoretical discourses (like Philosophy of Library Science or Comparative evaluation of different Classification Schemes etc.) in foreign blogs earns good sums in Indian Currency, besides, in case you are spotted as a good writer, you will get approaches from people. As I understand writing three such materials a day (nearly 300 -330 words each) is quite possible and each such write ups can earn $18.47 each on an avarage (that means around Rs. 1100/-) and in certain cases for subject related issues one can earn even $29.78 (nearly Rs.1800/-) per article! In case you are a registered blogger in a Third Party Blog, the price is negotiable and it often depend on how popular your articles are!! As a successful professional blogger you can write 30-40 articles per month at the minimum and 130-140 at the maximum.
In course of time when you are established as a professional blogger, you can try for one of your own so that every penny you earn it is all yours!!
