ABSTRACT

The Ph.D. is an abbreviation of Doctor of Philosophy which is a highest degree in academic world and also called Doctorate. In the higher education environment, Universities plays a vital role in conducting doctoral research programmes to develop higher education system. Library science is growing rapidly in India, the main reason being that today most of the universities are demanding a doctoral degree for library and information science faculties as well as for senior professionals in university and other higher educational and research libraries. A PhD scholar, one is expected to pursue structured, supervised research into one of the many related fields in which the Faculty has expertise. At the end of their period they are expected to write an extended thesis, demonstrating evidence of their capacity to pursue scholarly research. The results of this research should make an original contribution to knowledge and be of a standard appropriate for publication. Before pursuing for a Ph D one need to be sure that he/she has a keen personal interest in the topic to be researched - and an interest in the process of research along with a strong academic background with a good first degree.

The history of research in library and information science in India is about decades old. The initiation of library and information science education in India by Dr. W.A. Borden (1911), started with short term training programme at Baroda. In 1915, A.D. Dickinson started three months apprentice training programme at Punjab University. These two were the milestones for the origin and development of library and information science education in India.But the credit undeniably goes to Dr.S.R.Ranganathan, for his contribution to start doctoral research programme in library science in India. In 1951, he started providing library science education at the University of Delhi. The University of Delhi awarded the first de jure degree in library science in 1957 to D.B. Krishan Rao who worked on “faceted classification for agriculture” Dinesh (2010). However, the Munindranath Basu is the first librarian to earn a doctorate for his thesis ‘Museum Method and the Process of Cleaning and Preservation/Library Preservation’ in 1950. He got his Ph.D. by the Calcutta University.

Two decades later, the second doctoral research degree was awarded to Dr. Pandey Syraj, under the guidance of Jagdish S. Sharma by Pubjab University in 1977. Then, many universities offering doctoral research programme in LIS their own. The study is to understand the growth and development of Ph.Ds in Library and Information Science accepted by Indian Universities during the period of 1950-2013 (more than Six Decades).

The main aim of compiling this book is to provide the earlier research information to research scholars, research supervisors, teachers and others for their further research and also it serves as reference guide to the LIS professionals. Another purpose of a bibliography is to make it easy for a curious reader to find the source for your research work.

Book included analysis report of Chronological growth of Doctoral Dissertations in LIS Year wise, Decase-wise, Unisersity-wise, Subject-wise, Research supervisor-wise, and State-wise. And also it contains 2019 Doctoral research references which are awarded and registered in the various universities in India, in the form of bibliographical entries. The entries are arranged alphabetical order under Year wise, Ph.D research topic is highlighted with bold font and information not found for some of the entries.

Sir,

First and foremost, I applaud your forethought in coming out with such a useful resource for the students and library professionals alike.  It appears to be a mammoth work with a lots of painstaking efforts on your part.

Would you please tell us whether it is a qualitative analysis or quantitative analysis or both?
