I am from Varanasi and currently pursuing M.L.I.S. from BHU and I am in the second year. Should I look for PGDLAN or M.Phil. as plan B in case of not qualifying NET JRF?
Do you have better career suggestions?
for 1 Good decision for LIS profession , for 2 IGNOU is best , for 3 in ur BHU Uni. , you may do
Dear, Govinda...for PGDLAN they are not provided hostel.
thanks for the information
Dear Govind Yadav you can try in Hyderabad University jan.2018 session
Thanks for suggestion
Dear Govind Yadav,
It is not only a good decision but essential for LIS professionals to have PGDLAN or alternate one year course in computer based like PGDCA.
As far as Pondicherry University is concerned, the course is good but it is an evening course and attendance is compulsory. University don't provide accommodation and you have to make own arrangement.
As I stated earlier you can alternatively complete PGDCA from a repute institutions like IGNOU (first year of MCA program) or any other institutions after consulting your colleagues.You can also join PGDLAN course in IGNOU as suggested by Shri Niranjan above.
Also as mentioned by Shri Verma above , you can enroll University of Hyderabad PGDLAN course in JAN/FEB 2018. You have to attend two/three week compulsory class at the University at the end of 2018 and submit assignments before taking the final exam
All the Best.
Best of luck for your MLIS!
I have no information about Pondicherry Uni. however I would never suggest IGNOU for PGDLAN. I completed my PGDLAN this year itself and they have not updated the curriculum and still using the material published in 2003 and that too a reprint. So, in 2017 we studied material got prepared in 2003.
I would rather suggest you to prepare for UGC NET parallel to your MLIS so you don't really have to study extra. Plus do a diploma in computer application course or something.
Write articles to add value to your CV plus knowledge..
Thanks for sharing your experience. My primary objective is to clear NET JRF but as a plan B, I want to do something to enhance my knowledge and competency.
so you better do PGDLIM from TISS.
Yes, I am also looking for that.
What would you say about M Phil from Du?
