Dear Professional Friends,

LIS Academy thanks all the LIS Professionals who attended the consultative meeting organized by LIS Academy held at Raman Research Institute, Bangalore on 20th July 2019.  We thank all those peers and senior professionals also who contributed for completion of the memorandum which has been submitted today to Dr. Kasturi Rangan, the chairman of the drafting committee of NEP.

Earlier to this the team of LIS Academy members along with  Dr. Meera, Librarian RRI, Bangalore and Hamsa Kalyani, Librarian, NISA, IISc Bangalore met Dr. Kasturi Rangan on 26th July 2019 and held a detailed discussion. The chairman suggested the team to incorporate in its recommendations for introducing the LIS Departments as centers of excellence in five premier universities in each of the divisions of our country. Accordingly, the draft was amended and submitted today. We have also been assured of organizing a meeting with drafting committee members during this week. We have also been assured of including our recommendations in the final draft of the NEP.
