Training Opportunities for Library Science Professionals and Students in Bangladesh

The training opportunity for the LIS students and professionals in Bangladesh are not satisfactory. At this moment, both the university does not offer any training programme. The dept. of Information Science and Library Management, University of Dhaka organized some training programme on CDS/ISIS, but due to lack of infrastructural facilities and initiative from the faculty members, the programme did not continue.
There are some leading libraries in Bangladesh which offer training programme for the LIS professionals and students, but most of them are confined on CDS/ISIS training. International Center for Diarrhoeal Diseases Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR’B) Library, Center on integrated Rural Development for Asia and the Pacific (CIRDAP) Library, Community Development Library (CDL) and Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) library offer training course on CDS/ISIS subject to availability of the participants. But due to high course fees, the LIS professionals cannot afford to take part in the course. Two libraries in Dhaka, name ICDDR,B & IUB also offer library attachment training, but the participation of the course is not satisfactory level due to high course fee.
Another leading private University, North South University started certificate course on “Online and Digital Librarianship” in 2004. some other libraries also organize training programme, but the total effort is far below than the requirement.
