Terminology Alert: Lectures/Conferences/Seminars/Workshops/Congress/Symposia

We come across most of the below mentioned words sometime in our academic or research life.  Mostly these words are synonymously used; but there are a lot of differences between all these words as given below

  1. Lecture: According to Lecture is a discourse given before an audience or class especially for instruction. We can say that lecture is a discourse on a particular topic given by  the faculty or an expert for a short period of time in a day within the institution orienting the students/participants/attendees the basic or advanced information.
  2. Seminar: According to Seminar is a group of advanced students studying under a professor with each doing original research and all exchanging results through reports and discussions. We can say seminar has a educational connotation. It is within the institution; only the single invited speaker for that event is from outside the institution; the faculty/expert disseminates knowledge in the form of lectures. It has little or no participation from those who are attending.
  3. Conference:  According to Conference is a meeting of two or more persons for discussing matters of common concern. We can say that conferences are organized by Associations, Universities, Research Institutions, Organisations/Institutes/Companies where attendees get information about latest trends and developments in the industry where luminaries in the chosen field of study to enlighten the attendees with their expert knowledge; share opinions, innovative thought and piratical application. It can be for more than one day.
  4. Workshop: According to a usually brief intensive educational program for a relatively small group of people that focuses especially on techniques and skills in a particular field. We can say that its combination of lecture presentation followed by major chunk of time  on practicals or “hand-on-practice” or laboratory work by  practicing the actual concept or technique that was taught through the lecture and demonstration process; actively than by just listening. The number of days to hold a conference can vary from one day to spanning several days.
  5. Congress:  According to Congress is a formal meeting of delegates for discussion and usually action on some question. We can say that it is for not more than a day and attended by leaders in that field, and features a series of invited talks by eminent people from that discipline. It is typically held once a year highlighting the achievements, notable results in that field/discipline.
  6. Symposium:  According to Symposium is a formal meeting at which several specialists deliver short addresses on a topic or on related topics. We can say that  many experts present or deliver their opinions/viewpoints on a chosen single topic of discussion in a single day. Usually discussions are conducted after the experts have presented their speeches on the chosen topic. It is a small scale conference with limited number of attendees/participants/delegates.

Copyright Infringement of IndiaLibraries Image by ‘LIS International’ WhatsApp Group!

IndiaLibraries has been using the Image of India Flag with Globe in the background as LOGO of IndiaLibraries.


One of IndiaLibraries members got to our notice below image on 3 Apr 2017


So we immediately got in touch with the number 9630875842 on WhatsApp and left messages!


and left more messages but to no avail!


We used caller id and identified the person with number 9630875842 as


We left messages on Facebook of Prabhat Pandey ji

Prabhat Pandey LIS International.png

To which Prabhat Pandey ji responded

Prabhat Pandey Response.png

If that group was not created by Prabhat Pandey ji who is this Prabhat Pande ji with 9630875842 who has started the group but is not responding to our requests!

IndiaLibraries would like to request ‘LIS International’ WhatsApp group members and admins (we are given to understand Salek Chand ji, Praveen Kumar Jain ji, Mukund Kolwadkar ji are the other admins of the group along with 9630875842!). IndiaLibraries will be posting our request publicly on Facebook. Our request is that all LIS Professionals and public in general started associating this image with IndiaLibraries. If a person is utilising this image then there is a chance of misleading people into thinking that ‘LIS International’ is part of IndiaLibraries as displayed below!


We are hoping that all the above mentioned admins of ‘LIS International’ and LIS professionals understand that as LIS professionals we need to understand copyright issues and ensure that we do not infringe them. We need to follow correct policies and procedures.

Since then we are using the below image

IndLibs Copyright.jpg

We request everyone to not utilize the above image for ‘any’ purposes as this is being used as a logo for IndiaLibraries and it can only be used by IndiaLibraries on various social media.

Kindly connect with for further information.

Point of Discussion on IndiaLibraries WhatsApp Group – Regarding Rules and Regulations of Appointment of Librarian!

There was an interesting discussion started by one member Mr Sonaj Kailas on IndiaLibraries WhatsApp Group.

He writes that LIS job seeking candidates of Kerala are facing a serious issue:  There is a separate common pool library service under the Higher Education Department of Kerala Government which is still following old rules in which a candidate with 10th Standard with Certificate in Library Science can apply for Grade IV Librarian. Due to which candidates having qualified MLISc with UGC NET are not getting the job.

Kindly forward how many States are following similar structure.

How can we address this issue?

What should we be doing to change this?

Why are we not raising our voice?


The following have been point of discussion amongst almost all Library and Information Science Professionals. But it is strange to note that these issues plague most LIS professionals in India but none of the Library Associations in India have ever united under one umbrella and discussed these issues.

There are many LIS Associations – International Associations in India, National, Regional, State, Local Associations. The whole list can be accessed at

LIS Associations Presidents are ‘elected’ every term  and surprisingly are elected unanimously! And even more surprising are the members who pay their life memberships or annual memberships and never question the ‘elected leader’ during his term or at the end of his/her term!

It is time to wake up! Time to demand to know what are the Library Associations doing?

Points of discussion and debate:

  1. Why Staffing pattern varies from
  • State to State
  • University to University
  • College to College
  1. Long Delay in appointment of librarians & faculty
  2. National Library is also being run with a Librarian In Charge
  3. Salary Structures
  4. Designations
  5. Guideship/Projects allocated only to Teaching LIS and not Practising LIS

Kindly forward any relevant document regarding disparity in rules and regulations of appointment of faculty and librarians to so that we can host the information on IndiaLibraries blog.
