Being a professional course, Career Counselling & Guidance (CC&G) is an integral part of the LIS Curriculum offered by the department. Right from the initial orientation programme, till the end of the programme, the students are given appropriate inputs for sound career building & strengthening of their professional skills. This approach of constant sensitization is the regular feature also embedded in the classroom teaching. Specific measures taken for CC&G include:

  1. Making them aware regarding the technology & techniques and best practice being adopted by the libraries.
  2. How they can sharpen their skills with appropriate guidance by the faculty members.
  3. Sensitizing the students regarding soft-skills including effective CV making & interview preparation.
