Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



Recruitment means systematic process of searching for prospective employees and stimulating them to apply for job in an organisation. The study inquires the current trends of job opportunities for qualified LIS professionals in the area of library and information science by examining all job advertisement published in different online job portals. The data collected from different online job portals have been criticised to reflect the various aspects of LIS profession such as employer and designation wise distribution of jobs, essential and desirable qualifications and competencies for different type of job positions. The data collected have been explained through tables and figures. The finding show that the number of posts advertised is very less in number in comparison of number of fresh LIS graduates. Therefore the state and central government should provide more job opportunities for fresh LIS graduates, LIS professionals and for research scholars.
