International Encyclopedia of Information and Library Science by John Feather,Paul Sturges Book Resume:

The International Encyclopedia of Information and Library Science was published to widespread acclaim in 1996, and has become the major reference work in the field. This eagerly awaited new edition has been fully revised and updated to take full account of the many and radical changes which have taken place since the Encyclopedia was originally conceived. With nearly 600 entries, written by a global team of over 150 contributors, the subject matter ranges from mobile library services provided by camel and donkey transport to search engines, portals and the World Wide Web. The new edition retains the successful structure of the first with an alphabetical organization providing the basic framework of a coherent collection of connected entries. Conceptual entries explore and explicate all the major issues, theories and activities in information and library science, such as the economics of information and information management. A wholly new entry on information systems, and enhanced entries on the information professions and the information society, are key features of this new edition. Topical entries deal with more specific subjects, such as collections management and information services for ethnic minorities. New or completely revised entries include a group of entries on information law, and a collection of entries on the Internet and the World Wide Web.

The Encyclopedia of Geographic Information Science covers the essence of this exciting, new, and expanding field in an easily understood but richly detailed style. In addition to contributions from some of the best recognized scholars in GIScience, this volume contains contributions from experts in GIS' supporting disciplines who explore how their disciplinary perspectives are expanded within the context of GIScience—what changes when consideration of location is added, what complexities in analytical procedures are added when we consider objects in 2, 3 or even 4 dimensions, what can we gain by visualizing our analytical results on a map or 3D display?

Library and Information Science Education in the Indian Job Market. A Study of Indian Universities and Corporate Libraries by Bobby Goswami Baruah Book Resume:

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Library Science, Information- / Documentation Science, grade: A, , language: English, abstract: This study examines the Information Science Eduacation of Indian Universities and Corportate Libraries, with a specific focus on how the criteria of the Indian job Market are met within the context of this education. The Library and Information Science curriculum needs to adapt to the changes in today’s job market requirement. The job market demands much more competencies, including information and communication skills. However, various studies reported a lacuna in the profession in terms of being fully compatible to the job requirement or in other words the profession fails to meet the expectations of the job market. Here, the enquiry arises as to who is accountable? Are the LIS curricula in the universities offering Library and Information Science courses not up to date and practical oriented or not at par with the job descriptions for LIS professionals in different sectors? This big question is affecting the whole profession globally, but steps have been taken in some developing countries to streamline the curricula with diverse job requirements. When we talk in terms of India, a lot has been discussed and talked about the current library and information science professionals in the context of the emerging Indian job market. But steps to modify, remodel and implement the curricula as per national and global necessities are yet to be done. This is the main problem in statement. There are two major concerns- firstly, the inclusion of ICT and non ICT course contents in the curricula and secondly the job requirements of corporate and university libraries. The critical examination of the specific needs of the corporate employees should be given due consideration in redesigning the curricula. The non-lucrativeness of jobs for the LIS professionals could also be an issue that concerns the fraternity that can be solved by dealing first with the course contents. The rationale behind this study is not only to critically examine the curriculum of the post graduate levels currently followed in India and study the job requirements of university and corporate libraries, but also to identify the discrepancies and thereby come up with some concrete measures. A review of the results on earlier empirical studies carried out in India indicates that the variables in the study (curriculum and job requirement) are examined from different perspectives of narrower scales but no studies of the intended magnitude and landscape are done so far.
