Punjab Library Association (PLA)


PLA is one of the earliest library associations formed in India. Its roots can be traced back in th pre-independnce era to the year 1916. This year Dr. A.C. Woolner, Honorary University Librarian, Punjab University, Lahore took inititive to form PLA. Another first of this PLA was the publication of a manual entitled Punjab Library Primer in the year 1916. This manual was published by PLA to give practical training to the new entrants to the profession which was still in its infacncy in India. Other firsts of PLA include starting of a first journal in library science in India entitled `Modern Librarian' in 1930. Later the journal was taken over by the Indian Library Association. Dewey College of Librarianship was also started by PLA in 1937. Partition of Punjab in 1947 caused a severe blow to the rich libraries in Punjab, the library community, and the PLA.

PLA ws rehabilitated at the first book festival of Shimla (then Simla) in 1948. It shifted its headquarters to Chandigarh in 1952. PLA remained very active during 1950's, 1960's, and early 1970's. It organised seminars, brought awareness among people towards libraries, organised book festival and national library week, published quality literature (books and journals), championed the cause of libraries and library staff, and conducted certificate course in library science. A court case against PLA election held in 1974 caused the second severe blow to this association. As a resut of the court case and the deteriorating political atmosphere, it remained inactive for about a decade and a half.

The enterprising punjabi spirit again demonstrated its strngth when a group of librarians met in January 1989 to enroll new members for PLA. The political atmosphere in the state was very bad, and terrorism had still not faded away. Even in such conditions, as a result of the January 1989 meeting and enrollment of new members, elections were held in May 1989 and the PLA was rejuvenated.

Today the rejuvenated PLA is an active association of library professionals in the state with a rich legacy for guidance, and a forward looking attitude for meeting its objectives.
