The canvas covering aspects/areas like Library & Information Science, Extension Education and Rural Development seems apparently different and distinct in nature. These areas having overlapping aspects and components encompass substantially in this book in encyclopedic style.
We are in the ‘Information Age’ where knowledge is a capital resource and information is a primary commodity. The optimum solution that ICT can offer to any undertaking is Knowledge Management (KM) combining organizational dynamics, knowledge engineering and ICT to manage intellectual assets of an organization. ICT addresses the commitments to poverty, lack of access to education and health services, lack of production opportunities and isolation and lack of information.
The coverage of the publication represents the fusion of traditional contents of various disciplines with a number of emerging thoughts relevant to those disciplines. The major disciplines covered in the volume are library science as an interface for agriculture in general and extension education & rural development in particular. This may be treated as a guide book/ hand book/reference book for several purposes for being used by UG and PG students including research scholars. It should also serve as a reference manual for training and management centers like KVKs, ATCs and government departments, cooperatives, banks and NGOs and even management institutes.
