Curriculum Development in the Changing Context of Information: INSDOC Experience.
Rajan, T. N.
Based on the INSDOC experience, this document examines the types of information institutions emerging in India and the varied types of manpower required to organize and manage information services in this changing context. Following a discussion of the current situation and an enumeration of the different categories of information professionals now active, a rough parameter for delimiting information science with a specific focus on service is presented. Information science is examined as an intersection of four distinct areas: subject knowledge, information handling, information technology, and management. The curriculum of the INSDOC training course leading to an Associateship in Information Science is then examined on the basis of the philosophy and approach just outlined. The course contents and syllabus of the course are given in some detail. (Author/THC)
