English abstract

The main objective of the thesis “Use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for Automated Networking and Resource Sharing in the Selected Public and Private University Libraries in Bangladesh: A Study” is to fulfill the partial requirements for course ISLM-505 of the Masters Degree in Information Science and Library Management. It is believed that this type of work is inevitably the result of the collaboration of many great helpers, otherwise continuing alone with a gigantic mass of scattered materials and on the subject and their presentation in a form most coherent and consistent can outbalance the patience of a feeble mind as him. All available papers, relevant documents, international journals’ articles and some brochures have been minutely scanned through. The present study has been discussed under seven broad chapters. The study discusses the methodology, scope and objectives adopted for collection, presentation and analysis of data for this study. It focuses the meaning, need and scope of resource sharing and library networking and use of ICT facilities for automated networking and resource sharing and traces the historical growth and development, functions and services of some selected public and private university libraries in Dhaka city. The study also attempts to discuss the present status of resource sharing and networking of libraries, particularly public and private university libraries in Dhaka city. It also covers the previous situation, present condition and future prospects of resource sharing in the public and private university libraries in Bangladesh and a suitable proposal for library networking and resource sharing among the public and private university libraries has been made. The findings and recommendations from the study should hopefully lead to a clarification of many problems in the formulation of planning andpolicy making regarding resource sharing and library networking. It is assumed that it would help the librarians, policy makers and concerned authority to develop and implement a suitable system to accelerate library resource sharing activities in Bangladesh. However, all the possible investigations have been made to collect data related to the study in order to give a complete picture. It may be useful as a basic work for future investigators. If the work is found useful to the planners, librarians and information specialists, the efforts undertaken would be successful.
