The Department of Library and Information Science became functional from June 2009. Started with the objective of enhancing Effective Library Management Skills, the Department offers Two Years MLIS., M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes.
The programmes aim at enabling students to gain subject knowledge, generate their own knowledge and converting knowledge into productive action. The Department has implemented a teaching-learning process that involves more participation by students. The classroom transaction is interactive, significantly departing from the teacher -tell-it-all modes. The students, instead, will do the course, learning how they learn. And by this exercise, the students are expected to become effective monitors of their learning. The pedagogy comprises training the students in capturing, storing, accessing, sharing, creating and applying knowledge.
