Dear Ms. Kulmeet Kaur.

Thanks for your post which addresses (and uncovers) a rather bitter issue which,majority of us try to avoid and that is general perception towards our profession!! However, at the very onset of my writing, I openly and strongly protest against the announcement.

Well, coming to the context of the advertisement, it appears that a particular State Government in India requires Three Types of staffs for the union government's ambitious project of Sarva Siksha Mission.

The Required Staff are (a) Information Managers, (b) Office Managers & (c) Library Managers and for all these categories of Staff they PRIMARILY require Computer Professionals while it seems to them that a graduate or in Library Science OVER & ABOVE the prescribed Computer Qualification will be better.

I wonder what sort of plans they have perceived for the Library Managers for the Sarva Siksha Mission? or more simply what sorts of works the Library Managers are supposed to do? Remote access to Distant mode of learning?

In that case who will be givers at the remote sites and who will be the takers? 

As I personally feel it would have been quite wise of them had they approached some professional consultants in the field of Library service so that they could have guided the Govt. planners about modalities of the package which could have been easily delivered through IT professionals.

Well, in that case they did not require these so called Library Managers and a few among our professionals would have remained unemployed (while there is a big ?? as to how many of Library professionals will be recruited at all!!)

Above all, the advertisement struck me rather bluntly as how the people (outside our profession) feel about this field of education?

It is my personal feelings that they might have retained the professional Qualification just for the sake of keeping  (it might be the idea: Well, since there are posts of Library Managers, it does not look nice if the professional qualification is shredded off: after all it is a government announcement!! to thik hai chalo oh vi dal dete hain!!)

I urge to all the professional colleagues to please get this to our heart & brain about where do we exist in the mind of general people. It is our duty to get ourselves out of this mentality.

I openly admit that many of us, the boastful seniors in the profession and even our revered predecessors have let this happen. And we can not escape without being accused.

I am not dragging our professional Associations in this respect as I believe that less is said of them, will be better!

It is not right, at least m.lib come under essential qualification.
This is totally unjustified. I think all the Haryana professionals should joined together. Any individual alone cannot do anything for this case. We need help from HLA or ILA for this issue.
