Few takers for library science
If estimates presented in a study by the librarian at the Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad (MICA) Shailesh Yagnik are to be believed, currently 2,22,350 people are engaged in libraries in higher secondary institutions, general colleges, professional colleges, central libraries and district and town libraries.

According to him, despite the higher potential of growth in LIS education, students are not interested in taking up the course.

Few takers for library science in India

I wonder what the wages are for the 2,22,350 people engaged in libraries in higher secondary institutions, general colleges, professional colleges, central libraries and district and town libraries in India.

Are wages the barrier or other cultural or economic issues?
