A pioneering tradition has characterised the School ever since its founding in 1961 as a constituent unit of the SNDT Women’s University. The School began by offering a Post-Graduate Diploma programme in Librarianship. Over the years, the School has evolved and started programmes which reflect the changing context of the profession, the increasing application of modern technology to well established information handling techniques. By offering a course in digital Librarianship, it is responding to the expanding opportunities of the job market.
