INTRODUCTION

1.1 IMPORTANCE OF LIBRARY:-

At one time a library was regarded as a storehouse and books were


meant for preservation. The librarian was supposed to be a custodian
who did not encourage the use of books .As far as possible a librarian
kept out of the way of the readers. Libraries tended to be passive and
archival institution .A modern library with a few exception is regarded
as a service institution Its aim is to enable the users to make the most
effective and efficient use of the resources and services of the library.
The field of library science has witnessed tremendous development
during the past few decades The decade of 1960 and 1970s have
witnessed unparalleled growth and development of threshold of a
revaluation This revolution will make it possible for information to be
made available for the farthest corners of the global thanks to the latest
information technology The essence of the technology lies in the
enormous storage capability of the computer coupled with speed in its
retrieval of information.
We should recognize the true dimension of the revaluation in terms
of scope and range application of new technology of library function and
service is highly significant hopefully its use will lead to qualitative
improvement of existing library and information services It will also
become possible to start certain services which are difficult to provide

7
otherwise There is not doubt that its impact and its users of information
service centers A user will have tremendous resources at large data base
deally speaking the future development of Indian libraries should take
place along the lines mentioned above The sooner our libraries get
involved in automation the better it will be however we need not
undergo all the stages of development undergone by them but can cut
down certain stages .Libraries schools should take up the responsibility
for training personnel who would become available to take up the
challenge large majority of our libraries shall continue to be run along
traditional for a long time to come.
At one time a library was regarded as a storehouse and books were
meant for preservation The librarian was supposed to be a coustadian
who did not encourage the use of books. The readers were expected to
use library on their own .At the most, if a readers asked for a book then
so called librarian would pass on the book and leave him alone As far as
possible a librarian kept out of the way of the readers libraries tended to
be a passive and archival institution perhaps There was not enough
incentives for them to become dynamic.

1.3 FUNCTION OF LIBRARIES:-

THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF SGRR ARE:

Promotion of the library movement in India;


The adoption of national library policy by the central and state governments.
Development of a National Library System by integrating the services of
National Libraries, State Central Libraries, District Libraries and other types
of libraries through an interlibrary lending system;
Propagation and adoption of library legislation in the country;
Provision of financial and technical assistance to libraries;
Provision of financial assistance to voluntary organizations and library
associations for the promotion of library development;
Periodic publication of reports on library development;
To act as a clearing house for ideas and information on library development
in India and abroad;
To advise the Government of India Library Development;
Promotion of research in problems of library development (Baraua 1994,
p.64)
The primary objective of RRRLF is the promotion of the library movement.
The rest are subsidiary objectives. RRRLF is the first government sponsored
body specifically created for the purpose. The foundation also has a
programme of assistance to libraries for workshops, conferences, and
exhibits. The foundation has taken the major initiative for the formulation of
a national policy on library and information system by the government of
India. The current programmes of assistance are:

Collection building;
Rural libraries and mobile library service for rural areas;
Seminars, workshops, conferences, training courses, and exhibits;
Facilities and equipment for educational purposes;
Assistance to voluntary organizations providing public library services;
Assistance to childrens libraries or childrens selections of general public
libraries (Barrauu 1994, p.65-66)

13
During the last three decades, the foundation has assisted more than 500
libraries, including many in rural areas (Kumbar, 2005) National Policy on
Library & Information System (NAPLIS) In 1985, a committee was set up
under the chairmanship of Prof. D.P. Chattopadhyay to formulate a National
Policy on Library &Information System (NAPLIS) (Chatoopadhyay, 1998).
The Committee submitted its report in may 1986. Following that, another
committee looked implications of the report and created an action plan for
its implementation (Bhatachrjee 1999, p. 19-20). The Empowerment
committee submitted its report in April 1988 and an Implementation Cell
was formed to implement its recommendations within a period of six months
(p. 20). Yet another Working Group, under the joint Secretary to the
Government of India in the Department of Culture, was constituted to
examine its recommendations for implementation.
The working Group submitted its report in July 1993 and suggested
implementation only 29 of 60 recommendations made by the NAOLIS.

The following are some of the recommendations of NAPLIs related to


public libraries:

Proposals for maintenance and development of public libraries should


preferably come from state legislative enactment. The Central Government
may revise the Model public Library Bill. Funds for library development
should come from each state, either from general revenue or from local
taxation. Central Government agencies may provide funds under plan
expenditure.
Efforts should emphasize rural public libraries. A village or a cluster of
village with an adequate population should have a community library/rural

14
community centre, which will also serve as an information centre. Resources
from various agencies engaged in the public health, adult education, state
and central government, etc., should be used to build up and maintain this
center.
The central government increases its assistance to state governments in the
development of public libraries. The RRRLF, as the national agency for
coordination and assisting strengthened in order to do this.
Standards and guidelines for library service should be created.
There should be a system of nation libraries consisting of national library,
Calcutta (Now Kolkata) as the National Library of India, National
Depository libraries in Delhi, Bombay (Now Mumbai), Madras (now
Chennai), National Subject Libraries, and others. These national libraries
should form part on one integrated system.
A national Commission on Libraries and in information system or national
commission on informatics and Documentation may be constituted by an
Act of Parliament to serve under the Ministry of Human Resources
Development. The Commission will have representation from appropriate
central and state agencies and could provide guidance and coordinate library
development programmes in all sectors. This body will have the primary
responsibility for the implementation of NAPLIS programmes.
National Depository libraries; Connemara Public Library, Chennai; Central
Library (Asiatic Society), Bombay; and Delhi Public Library, Delhi should
concentrate on development of collections and preservation of Indian culture
produced in the efforts of the Indian National Library.
Government should create a national awareness of the need to preserve the
nations cultural heritage. National libraries should be responsible, with
preservation facilities created there. Links between libraries, archives, and
museums should be established for the purpose of national preservation.
The Ministry of Rural Development has a plan for one community centre in
every Panchayat Centre. The Department of Cultural and the ministry of
15
Rural Development have agreed to provide library services at each of these
Rural Community Centers.
An Important link should be established between community centre library
and primary schools. If the schools do not have libraries of their own, the
community centre library should provide children with adequate services.
A community centre library should have an important role in adult education
programmes.
A district library should provide facilities and recreation for the disabled and
low-income people , e.g., literature in Braille
Libraries should be built in areas of tribal concentration and in minority
communities to help in developing and sustaining their distinctive cultures.
All public libraries within a state should form a part of a network extending
from village library through community centre library, and state network,
and should be linked to the national information grid (Sahib, 2003).

PERIODICAL SECTION

This importance of public reading rooms have declined a bit yet these provide
useful places where we find all current newspaper and congenial atmosphere to
site and read. In our library also we have a separate periodical in demand and all
the current newspaper available for the readers daily so that can use them
currently as and when any particular issue is in talks. It is served by a group or
professional to entertain any sought asked by the readers.

REFERENCE SECTION

They are the readers for whom the library is established as it provides the best
services for which the readers visit the library. It provides personal assistance to
the readers not only on the reference desk but through telecommunication also.

queries while other are the readers who come to consult encyclopedias,
dictionaries, maps govt. gazettes notification etc.
