About the Book

Eminent LIS professionals of the country have put in the best possible efforts to present the developments in library and information services in the States and Union Territories of India since Independence. The two volume compendium was planned on the occasion of Golden Jubilee of India’s Independence. The first volume entitled “50 Years: Library and Information Services in India†which presented holistic picture of developments in various facets of library and information science was released on the occasion and it was widely acclaimed. This second volume has attempted to cover developments in LIS in each State and Union Territory of India. The first fifty years after Independence of India were important as these marked the beginning of development of different types of libraries, documentation centres and library and information networks for providing LIS in an efficient and effective manner. The next fifty years are considered an era of application of information technology in the field. The volume on library and information services in States and Union Territories of India, on the eve of new millennium, should be an invaluable source of information to library and information professionals, decision makers and educationists.
