Guest Editorial of PAK-LIS News, August 2003
- Dr. G. A. Sabzwari's guest editorial in PAK-LIS News, August 2003,
really impressed me. I am sorry to see that no person responded upon
the Guest Editorial of Dr. G. A. Sabzwari.
These are the feelings of young professionals that Dr. Sabzwari
presented. I think this is the time, LIS profession in our country is
looking for new dimensions and role of professionals. The senior
professionals should initiate to call for professional zeal and zest
and to set aside their personal differences and to do their best for
the promotion of LIS in Pakistan. I have talked to many professionals
especially new professionals, they are hopeless and feel that their
seniors did not play their role well.
However it is the time to take proper decisions especially from
seniors' side. LIS Departments in different universities may play an
important role and provide platforms for career development of young
professionals. Workshops and new courses may be offered to the
professionals for their career development. I am sure that Grants may
be got to sponsor the research projects in the country especially
with joint research projects with foreign universities/
organizations. This will provide the unique opportunity to the
professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills and to accelerate
for the promotion of LIS practices.
Comments and suggestions are needed.
Thanks for your time.
