English abstract

Patrick Penland was one shaped the contours of information and communication science in the later part of twentieth century. The innovative programs he designed, the diversity of academic explorations he engaged in and his concerns and care for expansion of quality of information science and professionals across the globe, have given a new face to information science. Penland, as an information consultant, was involved in movements that promoted production and utilization of knowledge across the globe especially in developing countries. His narrative writing represent existential episodes of interpersonal drama within the fate of human destiny. He has always been involved with enterprises designed to ensure every citizen's democratic right for free access to universal knowledge, which still remains to be a dream. His writings embed the principles of Open Access to research half a century before the movement actually could set to start
