Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Date of this Version



The objectives of the LIS courses are to provide a real-life exposure to the students through up-to-date training and practical exercises. Besides, the course curricula should have orientations towards an understanding of basic foundations of the integrated theory. The balanced coverage of both theoretical and practical aspects will enable the students and trainees for professional work and the same will upgrade their level of knowledge to contemplate on the new frontiers of librarianship. As this subject is highly empirical in nature, therefore, incessant encounter with the happenings of the real field is of prime importance. The university offers postgraduate courses, like, BLISc, MLISc and Ph.D. in this field. This study tries to explain the present LIS education system imparted by Vidyasagar University, like course structure, curriculum, infrastructural facilities etc., and evaluates its present status in the light of UGC Model Curriculum 2001.
