English abstract

The father of Indian library science, Dr. S. R. Ranganathan has contributed a lot to the rich tradition of librarianship in India. During his studies abroad he became familiar with the western tradition of library science. At home in India, he helped develop a view and practice of librarianship that reflect Indian culture. Today we must continue his work. While we may learn from the West, we can contribute omething that is uniquely Indian to this discipline of library and information science. Importance of learning environments are increasing now. The appropriate environment will help a lot to decode the thought from books and documents to the readers heart. This paper discuses the decoding activities and improved level of decoding up to Wisdom.
