The Indian Research Information Network System (IRINS) evolves as a new paradigm to manage the research information effectively and efficiently. The IRINS showcases the research information in the public domain and allows individuals to access the research information at a single point. The present study tries to access the participation of Library and Information Science (LIS) faculty members on IRINS. This study also contributes to access research productivity of LIS faculty members at different spheres. The data have been collected from IRINS by visiting individual faculty profiles. The collected data have been analyzed and the major findings are - maximum faculties are registered on IRINS are from Annamalai University, maximum publications are contributed by Professors and maximum citations are received by Professors. The publications by faculties of the International Institute of Information Technology are more preferred than other institutions. The present study concluded on the fact that the inclusion of LIS faculties on IRINS was low. Thus this study suggests organizational level and individual level inclusion on IRINS indeed satisfy the objective behind IRINS.
