(20 February 2016) On 18th February 2016, NISCAIR organized a Seminar on Philosophy and Teachings of Dr. S R Ranganathan, where the organizer formally released ALIS special issue “Philosophy and Teachings of S R Ranganathan”. ALIS is an open access scholarly journal established by S R Ranganathan in 1954.
One of the speakers at this seminar highlighted the creation of the bibliographic profiles of 29 library and information science (LIS) pioneers on Google Scholar Citations, commissioned by the EC3 Research Group in Spain. Those scholars, now deceased, played an outstanding role in the creation and consolidation of the field of LIS.
These profiles are already accessible on Google Scholar platform. SR Ranganathan (1892-1972) is featured on Google Scholar Citations as one of these 29 LIS Pioneers. He only represented the Global South or the developing countries. Open access full-text articles in this special issue are now available online.
Access the issue online.
