Message from Chairman

Students are the destiny of a nation. Molding the students is the prime duty of a teacher. The University is a learning temple where the students not only learn the subject but shape their career with honesty and sincerity.

The welfare of students is a matter of priority in the Department of Library & Information Science. I hope that by the time our students leave the gates of this university they are enriched not just with factual knowledge but also with the confidence of fearlessly walking down the path of truth.

The vision of the Department of Library and Information Science is to promote academic achievement and excellence in teaching and training in the field of Library and Information Science.

On behalf of the whole department I welcome all our students to another year of meaningful activity and experience that would lead to an enhancement of energy, talent and capability. "We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future". Remember "The reward of every good action will be good only."

I wish all the students of Library & Information Science a future bright professional career. Each student should achieve their goal of life with distinction.
