Review by Sangeeta Roy, Librarian, Dispur College: A New Dimension in Library Management
The book namely ‘ICT for Library Management in Changing Environment’ is an edited and academic book of Library and Information Science subject, which comprises research articles on different topics of Library Science. The book has been jointly edited by Dr. Sanjay Kumar Singh (Professor and Head, Department of LISc., G.U.) and Dr.KishorSarma(Librarian, D.K. Girl’s College, Mirza).The book comprises 17 academically contributed research papers, which have been basically contributed by the budding library professionals, who are serving in the field of Library and Information services and meeting their user’s needs. Therefore, the authors have shared their experiences in the form of research papers. As the book comprises edited research papers, so the quality of papers is high as each paper has gone through anti-plagiarism software Urkund.
Managing library resources are the vital and core activities of any library.The book highlights the skills to manage and organise a library, through traditional as well as modern ways. It mainly gives stress to manage the library resources and services, to meet the particular and diverse needs of the library users in this new era. The book mainly deals with the new concepts of management like: human resource management, knowledge management, cost benefit and effectiveness analysis, LIS related standards, different sections of Library and Information Centres and use of ICT, IT applications, technological innovations, research programs and strategies for library centres’ management, library housekeeping operations,total quality management, increasing user communities etc.
Library and Information Science subject is getting changed at a very fast pace and that is why the managerial aspects of a library is also getting changed. Therefore, I think this book will be beneficial not only for the library professionals; who deals with the latest technologies, but also for the students of BLISc., MLISc., M.Phil. etc. on national level. So, the book aims to develop the skills necessary to manage, organise a library and facilitate information in all forms (printed and non-printed) to the users.
