About Department of Library & Information Science

 

Panjab University, realizing the need of trained library personnel, instituted a training course in librarianship at Lahore before the partition of India. A Post-Graduate Diploma in Library Science was instituted by the University at its Chandigarh Campus in 1960. It was redesignated as Bachelor of Library Science from the academic session 1968-69 and as Bachelor of Library & Information Science (1 Year Course) from the academic session 1988-89. The University instituted the Master of Library Science (1 Year Course) from the academic session 1970-71, which was re-designated as Master of Library & Information Science from the academic session 1988-89. Keeping in view the recommendations of the Curriculum Development Committee of the U.G.C., a Two-Year Integrated Course leading to Masters of Library & Information Science was started with effect from the academic session 2003-04. From the Academic Session 2016-17, the Department has reverted back to offering Bachelor of Library & Information Sciences (1 Year Course) and Master of Library & Information Sciences (1 Year course). Ph.D. in Library Science was introduced from the academic session 1972-73, which was also redesignated as Ph.D. in Library and Information Science from the academic session 1988-89.
