Abstract

Before the internet, libraries were the best source of information available. The library was not only a repository of knowledge; it was also a place to hang out and study. However, the internet and the ever-expanding digital gateway have resulted in the rise and prevalence of information on our phones, tablets, or our laptops. Some people have argued the place of LIS in the digital era and have concluded that there is no need of heading down to the library anymore for information. It is important to clear up such misconceptions. People do still use libraries to find out information. The researchers organized the chapter in the following way: introduction and background, history and development of LIS, overview of library and information science (LIS), librarianship past and present, trends and issues in library and information science curriculum, significance of LIS in the digital era, challenges of LIS profession in the digital era, recommendations, conclusion, and references.
