Abstract

Development of librarianship, though has good theoretical support, is not emulated to the sciences and art of knowledge society. Librarianship, as a profession, emanated through accumulation of ideas from various professionals entities. However due to the varied needs of the users, technological application, derivation of information activity in various fields like "information management" "knowledge Management" "information engineering" and "Information sciences", development of librarianship as information science was left behind. This study concentrates on "how librarianship is to be developed into a science. The science of librarianship is somehow lagging behind both at academic and research activity, whereas in practice level, information science is recognized more as a skill due to lack of on par endorsement from academic and research activity and the relationship of industry (practicing library) and Library and Information Science (LIS) departments.
