Convert student population to human resources: Capt Karnik


Speaking after inaugurating a seminar on ‘Best practices in library and information centre’ organised jointly by the Dakshina Kannada and Kodagu Library Association in association with St Agnes College library here on Wednesday, he said the library will be available on net. World is changing at the faster rate.

He said the education is not mere producing graduates and skilled labourers to the required market. It is also giving knowledge to the students on facing life. Education institutions should convert student population to human resources.

Librarians can contribute by opening the other windows of the world by accessing sources of knowledge to the students.

Indian Statistical Institute Documentation Research and Training Centre’s Prof I K Ravichandra Rao said the role of books, libraries and librarians are changing today. Earlier, library catalogue was the only source for seraching the books in the library. However, now catalogues of various libraries can be accessed with a touch of a button.

He said the principles of classification laid down by Father of Indian Library Movement Dr S R Ranganathan are relevant even to this day than what it was in 1940s. Libraries must accept the change, he added.

The website of Dakshina Kannada and Kodagu Library Association was launched on the occasion. An exhibition on ‘research documents’ was arranged on the occasion.
St Agnes College Principal Dr Sr Prem D’Souza presided.
