THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC CONDITION OF PUBLIC LIBRARIES IN BIHAR: A STUDY
Main Article Content
Public libraries have been often regarded as a mainstay to the frontiers of the available knowledge domain made available to common people deprived of access to tools, resources, media, and the enabling infrastructure in an era of digitalization. In recent years research work on public libraries has lost its importance among the savants and it has become a neglected area. An adequate public library service is essential to the citizen's social, material and cultural development. In all countries represented at the seminar, public library service is already being provided to some degree, and the time is ripe for further development. Public libraries are crucial resources during the difficult economic times for job seeking and training but are also one of the first public resources to face the budget cuts. The protection of the environment or defense is today invariably entrusted to institutions and organizations. Libraries and other similar types of institutions are those that collect, stock, possess, organize, disseminate and distribute information/knowledge recorded in documents.
