               One of my friend recently went for an interview for the librarian post. The college conducted the interview and asked everyone about their salary and everyone asked good payment. They told them to wait in the corridor. Suddenly one person came and asked all the candidates who is coming for the  salary Rs.7000/-. Three candidates raised their hand and accepted the salary and in that three one person is selected.

                Another important one is the college asked only NET/SET/Ph.D candidates and the selected person also cleared SET exam with M.Phil. I feel it is a very great insult for our profession by giving just Rs. 7000/- to SET cleared candidates. Will this happen to other professions? I dont know how the selected person agreed for this salary.

              I request the lis links members to comment their feelings

Very Sad, He should not have joined in this salary,

Dear Mr Perumal,

                               A Librarian earns an average salary of Rs 211,259 per year. Most people with this job move on to other positions after 3-5 years in this career. Experience strongly influences pay for this job.

I was shocked to find out these poor tenure track of our  people (librarians )have to pay part of their way! But, they willingly get paid and do not complain. A few years ago, I had one position where I was going to have to cough up a certain percentage. I told them "no" and they caved in. Five months later, I found another job. This same place would not count my 2nd master's degree towards promotion. Whenever I used to be a recruiter from my inst, I remain stubborn that my library staff must get as per their experience and degrees. I have seen many librarians too who used to recruit library staff at Rs 8000/- or Rs 10000/- to a three year experienced professional stating that the management wont be giving much more than this. Yes, we are also to be blamed while recruiting a staff. We are not here to sell our degrees for a miserable pay. I also believe we should respect our bread-feeding profession and we should stand united against the above title.

I wish more librarians played harball when negotiating an offer.

-warm regards,

Ajit P

Dear Mr Manic
It is very sad.. Since these kind of people joins for this salary, other managements also takes advantage and calls for very poor salary.

Situation is same everywhere, even in other subjects also, due to unaided courses are coming up people are ready to work any salary hoping that one day they will get a chance to get govt. position in same institution. In my college one M.Lib.pass candidate (working in unaided college)applied for the post of Lib. Attd.(Govt.) and college had rejected due to over qualification. Actually many Net/Set Candidates are not getting job in spite of full qualification so they accept any where they get the job.I think scenario is same in other subjects also.

This is a reality  of our profession everywhere. Average salary of a college librarian is  Rs 8000-13000.

we accept it otherwise what to do and reason is that government vacancies are very few(except KVS,NVS,DSSSB) .It is very rare that any state have school librarians and many college vacancy are vacant and attendant works as a librarians.

We should unite and ask INDIAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION what they are doing,

without combined effort no change.

India Library Association is suffering with sleeping sickess......


I think the system is responsible for this. Govt should check all these things at the time of affiliation and also establish a cell to monitor all these matters so one can complained there.

but sir................ we (professional associations) should make pressure on government to check all these matters unfortunately our LIS associations are busy in organising conference / seminar and tea samosa parties. they do not have time for professionals welfare. 

This is very bad..

Due to the personal problem we people should agree  to do work as much they gave salary otherwise we wont get job anywhere in our field. 

We should respect our profession first, only then other people will respect.they should  collectively deny for 7000 .we people should struggle for our teaching status at our workplace also , otherwise management will not consider us more than clerical staff.

sb log yahan pr VERY SAD VERY BAD likh kr narajagi jata rahe he.

Jabki sabko ye sachchai malum he.

Aaj job market me sare profession ka yehi haal hain.

MCA, MBA etc kiye hue students Rs.5000-7000/- ki job kr re he. To agar un tino ne 7000/ ki job li to its not bad.

Experience ke bad unki bhi salary badh jayengi.

BE POSITIVE................
