Massive Transformation through ICT in Library and Information Science Education and Career: Changing the Boundaries of Library Professionals
Date of this Version
Higher education and career planning are often conflated in India. Education and careers play an important role in our lives, and deciding on a career path is one of the most important decisions we can make. It decides our way of life and forms our future. Because of the current need for changed competencies of trained librarians and information scientists, as well as the resulting improvements in educational pedagogies and instructional techniques, ICT has had a significant impact on the education of LIS professionals. Through the integration of new ideas and services, ICT has played an important role in this paradigm shift and brought major changes to the field of library science. The professional qualifications or experience provide in this paper depend on promotions put in the library by universities or organisations for various levels of staff, indicating a lot of variety in comparative kinds of positions and an absence of clarification of ICT-based abilities criteria. The current paper analyzes how progresses in ICT have impacted and transformed library science education and courses, just as library science professions or careers. It also discusses the library profession’s changing position, as well as LIS careers and education in the digital age.
