Reading with difference
Reading continues to be a part & amp; partial of habit of individuals in the modern knowledge society. Just like other seekers of knowledge librarians do read. Reading for the sake of reading
does not normally lead to value addition nor understanding the article we read. The book one reads should be related to one's background, understanding & relevance because according to law of conservation Knowledge neither gets destroyed nor can it be created. Then only what we read gets internalized. When we (librarians) read, we read as a reader only. We need to read browse & access as librarians. The moment we wear the cap of a librarian what we read becomes more situational & more understandable, as all our works directly or indirectly are related to knowledge organization, knowledge storage and knowledge retrieval/Dissemination. It is but obvious that we should keep our interest alive to know a more & more about knowledge, its evolution, history & eminence.We got down to right this words after reading a write up on "Throwing Light on Knowledge "By G.S. Tripathi…….Speaking tree: Times of India:08/05/2010. Librarians should not miss to read such educative & thought provoking write ups. The high light of the write up should be of interest to every one, librarians too : 1.Knowledge is continuous, 2. Knowledge liberates the mind, 3. Knowledge of the ultimate enables eternal liberation 4; Knowledge is transcendental perception. 5. According to Ralf W. Emerson" A man should learn to detect & watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within". The Ideas of Prof.G.S.Tripathy is so close and relevant to our literature on knowledge organization. We must really keep learning more & more about knowledge organization from scholars like G.S.Tripathy because Knowledge is power.
