English abstract

India in 1995 has 44,205 public libraries. Since independence, the important relationship between library services and implementation of educational programmes has been recognized. In 2000 India will have one billion citizens. Nearly 50 per cent of World's illiterate population will be in India. India will have distinction of the largest illiterate democracy of the World. Micro-objectives of "Scientific Temper" have been already specified through 1) Statement on Scientific Temper, 2) Technology Policy, 3) National Policy on Education - 1986, and 4) Eighth Five Year Plan. Already well established: Education system, Research and Development system, Industrial system, Scientific Publications- system and Public Libraries system are available. Integrated approach can be used by developing linkages among all these through establishment of "Science Reference Desk" mechanism in all Public Libraries of India so as to cater quality information to public reached and unreached so far so that synergy develops.
