Dear Colleagues,

By the grace of God, we have witnessed a profound progress in research activities in the LIS field in Pakistan. Many faculty members and practitioners are producing research articles and publishing them in national and international journals. Many conference papers and books also appear each year. Many universities are offering M.Phil. and PhD programs and literature produced in this process is in abundance.

On the other hand, there is no centralized source which can provide information and resources necessary for LIS community involved in research in this country.

Keeping in view this need, I have started a specialized discussion list on LIS research. I admire those who joined paklisresearch group on yahoo.
So finally is in front of you, it involves faculty, research students, LIS practitioners and other stake holders, inside and outside of Pakistan, who are interested in research activities in library and information science in Pakistan.

With best wishes for your research endeavors,
