Indian Library Association (ILA)


History:The Indian Library Association is a premier association committed to the cause of Library Movement and Development.

The Indian Library Association is the national association which represents those who work in or advocate for Indian libraries. ILA members work in college, university, public, special (corporate, non-profit and government) and school libraries.

ILA has provided a wide variety of services and programs to its members and others in the library community since its formation in 1933. ILA's Executive Council and its divisions are advised by others groups and committees.The year 1933 happens to be the most significant year in the history of Library and Information Science in India. It was September 13, 1933 when Indian Library Association was formally formed at the First All India Library Conference at Calcutta.

Objectives: These members gave the Association three fold objectives which included:

(a) the furtherance of the library movement in India;
(b) the promotion of the training of librarians; and
(c) the improvement of the status of librarians.

In 1935 two more objectives were added:

(a) promotion of research in library science; and
(b) co-operation with international organizations with similar objectives. The 1970 amendment to the constitution added following four more objectives:
(a) publication of bulletins, periodicals, books etc., which tend to the realization of the objects of the association;
(b) establishment of libraries, documentation & information centres and assistance to their establishment and working;
(c) promotion of appropriate library legislation in India; and
(d) to do all such other things as are incidental of above mentioned objects.

The amendment dated January 4, 1987 in the constitution has added three more objectives namely:

(i) providing a common forum to all persons engaged or interested in library and information work by holding conferences and meetings for discussion of professional, technical and organisational issues;
ii) accreditation of institutions imparting library and information science education and training; and
(iii) promotion as well as formulation of standards, norms, guidelines, etc. for management of Library and Information Systems and Services.

For initial 12 years the office of ILA was housed in the Imperial Library at Calcutta. It was shifted to Delhi in 1946 and remained there till September 1953 in the University of Delhi and thereafter it shifted back to Calcutta. In August 1964 the office moved to Delhi again and was housed in Delhi Public Library. An extra-ordinary General Body Meeting held on May 24,1970 made a change in the constitution to make Delhi/New Delhi as the permanent headquarter of the Association. Now the office of the Association is housed in its own one room flat located in a commercial building in north Delhi which was purchased way back in 1978. The office was finally moved to the present building in April, 1982.

Dear Friends,

In our online library, we have enabled COLLECTION and it is available under advance search also.
We have a lot of language books also.
Problem 1:
When collection is working then language search does not work.
Problem 2:
If "charmap word-phrase-utf.chr" is disabled and "icuchain words-icu.xml" is enabled in /etc/koha/zebradb/etc/default.idx, then language search will work but not collection.

Additional information:
At the same time we noticed some thing else also.
One of the collections we have is "Science" and the code is "SCI".
When we select this and search in Advance search it says:
Results of search with limit(s): 'mc-ccode:'SCI''
No results found!
At the same time if we search mc-ccode:SCI in the opac search box (without the apostrophe), it shows:
Results of search for 'mc-ccode:SCI'
and all result will appear.
You can visit library (on google cloud) is available at: http://35.200.147.209/
Can anyone suggest a solution for this?
