Library Profession : Characteristics and ethics

Priti S. Bhandarkar

Abstract


Libraries are at a turning point. As technology rapidly transforms the way we access information, and resources are increasingly available online and in digital formats, the established role of the library as a physical space housing racks of books is looking increasingly out of step with the needs of students

and researchers. Allied with technology, library users’ needs and preferences are helping to  drive the change in libraries. Students, researchers and teachers now expect to be able to access information around the clock, from almost anywhere in the world and via a growing number of devices, from laptops to phones

This paper is an attempt to show that LIS profession is an essential and integral part for education system in India and LIS ethics plays a backbone for the future need and growth of society.
