|Abstract||Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to find out the Assam University library and information science (LIS) students’ perspective and desire concerning the use of Blended Learning (BL) in LIS education. Based on the results of this study, this paper will seek to identify their awareness and aspiration towards blended learning. Design/methodology/approach – A questionnaire was distributed to students of the LIS of Assam University, Silchar. First, they were asked to state their awareness on BL, and then to express their views for the use of BL in LIS education. Findings – This research revealed that knowledge of Blended Learning is less among respondents. But those who know, they appreciate Blended Learning as compared to traditional one in LIS education. The aspiration of students towards blended learning was examined in their urge to study in LIS course which deals with blended learning format of teaching and learning process. Again it also came to light that students might be more motivated to acquire LIS knowledge through Blended learning. Originality/value – The implementation of BL method of teaching, especially in LIS departments, is very important nowadays as because the future librarians are to work in a blended environment. There are only a few studies about BL in India. This study will help LIS faculty to understand students’perception regarding BL in order to shape the learning paradigm and adopt BL for their classes.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
