The Multifaceted Librarian
The librarian is not just a manager of libraries as he had been hitherto. He is an educator, facilitator, appraiser, mentor, confidant, guide and above all, a social worker. Ofcourse, to carry out these tasks, he ought to be an expert in library techniques like classification, cataloguing and preperation of bibliography which has to be added to information science, a new technique that has been introduced recently to enhance the efficiency of library service. The author discusses in detail, what the librarian is expected to do in each of these capacities.
