Fortunately, you can get, I will explain in details please read the entire article then you realize. At the end, you get the ways to get abroad jobs sure.

Most of the young librarians think and searching about to get librarian jobs in developed countries like the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Singapore,  etc,  Right.

The main reason for blocking to get jobs is the ALA - American Library Association. Yeah Because of ALA  Foreign Credentials Evaluation Assistance Read Here:

Main points of the ala link: The following countries have been identified as having "formal" accreditation processes. An individual who has received his/her degree from an institution that is included on the countries' lists of accredited institutions/programs is considered acceptable for employment in the United States. A list of the specific institutions can be found at:

And other credential evaluator associations are listed below:- The below associations also evaluate international student's degrees and qualifications.

 o   American Evaluation Association (AEA)

o   American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Office...

o   America-Mideast Educational and Training Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST)

o   American Translation Association (ATA)

o   Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE)

o   European Association of International Education (EAIE)

o   NAFSA: Association of International Educators (NAFSA)

o   National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES)

1. Question: Can you work overseas with a degree in library science?
Answer Said by Anthony Adam MLS Libraries and Librarianship, Louisiana State University: Yes, you certainly can, as long as it’s an ALA-accredited degree (you can get a degree in library science from a non-accredited program, but that might cause hiring difficulties). Of course, check local qualifications - some countries might want a degree accredited by their own institutions.
2. The journey of a non-ALA-accredited librarian in Canada By Shideh Taleban:
My Final Thoughts differ from fresher to experience:-
Freshers: Get again MLIS degree from ALA member institutions.
Experienced Librarians: find your credentials form the association and apply for the job. 
The above information I shared here is what I know: If you know any information or experience in abroad job searching, please share much appreciate. 
Thanks & Regards

Is there any institution in India which comes underALA ?

Really None of the Institutions in India includes Documentation Research and Training Centre (DRTC) but DTDC Faculties also gives lectures in Italy. I hope ILA will wake up in 2050, the future generation will sign up with tier 1 countries. 

Divya Ji ILA website is a single-page site. The members don't know to develop a website that's why they have given vendors to create See footer page (Website Designed & Developed by NS Websolution Private Limited). In that site, so many links are not working and the ILA site is running with advertisement revenue. How cheap is this - a non-profit organization or association don't do like this. (my personal opinion) also, it's National Association.

My question is even a website develop don't know association will help to resolve this, so many of the Indian citizens who study library science in India are working here for 6000 to 15000 per month in private organization or freshers getting level 3, level 6 position in government jobs. We study her we die her but no one cares.

In India, no standard for job, salary, duties you will do all work. See US Bureau of Labor Statistics job Duties, Pay and more read here  I just say how our system - don't prise any one here

Dear Library Professional Just Click Below Links and see the difference where our Indian Library association is? 





If you have time give a rating 1 to 5 Star for ILA.

My kind suggestion if you have ILA member don't vomit here, with your negative comments, you have a chance to change the association - Don't apology me if you hurt 

Hi Prashanth,

                     The above listed college/universities do they provide distance learning.
