Abstract

Low cost, ease of use and accessibility of microcomputer systems will make it possible for the Libraries and Information units in India to solve many of their automation problems. Increased involvement of L&I workers in computer-related activities require suitably trained manpower. Realising the need for trained personnel to-handle the S.D.I. services, N.C.S.I. has started a one year training programme in computer based information handling for librarians, since 1984-85. Oriented more towards imparting practical training, the course aims to develop the necessary skills and confidence in the students to develop and maintain computer software for library automation and information retrieval.
