Overview

Information needs to be organised and managed if it is to be used effectively and efficiently. Any Library and Information Science professional should be competent to select, acquire, organise and retrieve information.

With increasing digital information there have been changes in organising, representing, exchanging and retrieving information across platforms. All these concepts are part of this course. Anyone pursuing this course will be able to organise and manage information in different forms and formats.
