LIS Education:Some Rambling Questions
A profession is a self-regulating and autonomous sector of higher education. It is a system to educate, train and certify individuals keen to join it. Being autonomous it is also its own gatekeeper. In context of the larger environment and as a service to itself a profession has to make the nation aware of its importance, and remind the government and society at large of their responsibilities towards the profession. For Example, as an extension service the library profession has to help promote literacy movement and reading habits; and, also urge the government for library legislation for establishment and maintenance of libraries. As a system, profession constantly upkeeps human capital and knowledge assets. In a knowledge society human capital is much valued over other resources. Knowledge is powerful, pure and inexhaustible resource which can be created and harnessed without harming the environment. It is a resource of all resources.
