Abstract

Purpose: The study is based on secondary data of all India Survey on Higher Education in India, conducted by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Govt., of India and attempts to assess the overall enrolment scenario of Library and Information Education in India. The study evaluates the enrolment data of seven years viz., for the period 2011-12 through 2017-18, retrieved from the official website of the Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Govt., of India.

Methodology and Scope: The study is based on the survey data collected by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Govt., of India under all India Survey on Higher Education. The data are available in open access format and can be accessed from its official website. The data used for the study is for seven years and lasts for the period 2011-12 to 2017-18. The scope of the study is limited to Library and Information Science Education in India and the findings of the study cannot be generalized at the global or any other level. However, the findings of this study can give a better idea about the scenario of LIS education across the world, as India is one of largest countries in the world producing the largest number of LIS graduates

Findings: The results of the study revealed that of the total enrolments made in higher education in India across different subject disciplines during the period of study, meager 0.36% of students were enrolled in Library and Information Science. The enrolment in Library and Information Science in India during the period of study recorded a negative -5.38% Average Annual Corresponding Growth (AACG), which is quite worrisome, while as, the overall enrolment of the country registered an AACG of 3.31%. The results indicate that LIS education in India is quite popular among female students, as compared 47.70% male students, 52.30% female students were enrolled in LIS courses during the period of study. Given the distribution of students across different LIS programmes, it appears that LIS courses with nomenclature BLISc and MLISc are more popular among the students than the course with conventional nomenclature like B.Lib.Sc and M.Lib.Sc. These and many more aspects related to Library and Information Education in India were evaluated and discussed.
