More about Department of Library & Information Science, Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University

The Department of Library and Information Science, R.T.M. Nagpur University, Nagpur is one of the oldest departments of library science in the country. That time, there was no university in the state offering a postgraduate diploma course in Library Science.  Feeling the necessity, some of the senior librarians in the City had started approaching the University to start a Departments of Library Science.  Till then, the various University colleges and Departments were established with the munificent donations made by the various philanthropists. As the discipline Library Science is quite new and its social implications were not much realized by general public, it could not get a benefactor as in the case of the LIT, Department of Geology and the others.  Finally the University had approved the proposal on the assurance that the department will be ‘self sufficient’.   This is the reason why as many as 79 students were admitted in the 1st year. The classes were held both in the morning as well as in the evening. Initially, the department also had the problem of teaching staff. Very few qualified people were available in Nagpur who could surve the department.
