A peep to the present and the future: Soliloquy in Librarianship

  • Library Movement is a social movement. It seeks to, raise the general level of the life of the people as a whole by raising their standard of, living through societal institutions(s)/organisation(s). Library movement seeks to work through the mind. It emphasises that a prior cultivation of mind is necessary for physical, intellectual and social betterment. Library movement differs from the activities of formal education at school, college or university, which are well known means of feeding the mind. Library movement does not require the pleasure of a teacher. It leads to the growth of mind through “self-education”. “Strong determination” and “Tremendous Cultivation” of mind for achieving major objectives of the society is essential to help the society move ahead in good stead. As new technological development is applied, it has its impact on libraries and information units, whether it is of direct application: such as the, development of more rapid communications by high speed telecommunication networks or less direct efforts, the library system acts on the way in which the users react. Libraries, being major elements in the chain of information flow are usually more affected than effecting in relation of these changes. Apart from changed education environment, the library infrastructure has also undergone a change. The convergence of telecommunication and computer technologies in the contest of libraries has been the product of continual development rather than a sudden movement. The networking of libraries has now given rise to information networks, information databases and information infrastructure. The information environment has changed the infrastructure, the scope, the services and the goal of a library. The whole world is working today towards a Global Information Infrastructure. The Editorial discusses the present and future of Librarianship.
