Title: JOB PROSPECTS IN LIBRARY & INFORMATION SCIENCE: A STUDY OF VACANCIES NOTIFIED IN THE 'EMPLOYMENT NEWS' FROM 1998 TO 2001
Authors: Jeevan, V K J
Issue Date: Jun-2003
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: The printed weekly issues of 'Employment News' for 1998 to 2001 are analysed in this study to assess the job opportunities in the library and information science profession. The data gathered is presented in 25 tables and analyzed to reflect the major employers - the central/state governments and/or its allied institutions and the private sector; nature of job whether it is permanent,deputation or temporary; reservation trends; state in which the job is advertised; essential (academic as well as professional) and desirable qualifications; prior experience; and the prominent employers and categories of jobs. To a graduate who is looking for a suitable professional outlet, library and information science is thriving as a potential job prospect. This assumption is countered in this paper by making few suggestions regarding what is to be done by all concerned, be it the student, employer, or professional bodies. Though the data used in the study is limited, it reflects the significant trends from a major stream for professional employment,the central government and its autonomous and research institutions. However, more of such studies on data gathered from national and regional newspapers and job portals are required to verify the results of this study and to assess the true picture of employment trends in the discipline.
