SET NET Training Program:

MESs IMCCs Training Centre for Library and Information Science has started organizing the SET/NET Training Programme from January 2016. The programme is focused on providing proper guidance to the fellow library professionals in order to prepare them for the SET/NET Examination.

The programme is having a social angle. As all of you are aware, the required academic qualification for a college librarian is M.Lib.I.Sc. and must have passed SET/NET. It is observed that after getting the degree of M.Lib.I.Sc., majority of the professional fellows are not able to pass the SET/NET even after several attempts for so many years. Its a major hurdle for the professional fellows in building the academic career. This programme guides the participants and also gives the required theoretical knowledge and inputs for solving the test papers.

Programme Objective: Provide guidance and support to the fellow library professionals in order to prepare them for the SET/NET Examination.

Coverage: Paper I, II and III Timings: 10am to 4.30pm
