Abstract

Information is an important and vital source for each and every kind of organizations, institutions and so on. Information is very much close to the data and knowledge. Previously only information related affairs viz. collection to dissemination performed by the manual tools and techniques but the development of science and technology played a vital role in respect of information affairs. Initially, Documentation Science is treated as most important and valuable but gradually other subjects viz. Information Studies played a lead role in performing the jobs. Gradually another nomenclature became popular and played a great role in the information related affairs i.e. Information Science. It is important to note that at the beginning of the domain the performance and activities are mainly governed by the manual tools and techniques but gradually technologies influenced a better role. The requirement of information and contents in other areas and sectors lead the uses of domain ‘Information Science’. The domain thus combined with manual information management affairs and also technological components. The field Information Science and its applications in other subjects and sectors developed newer fields and domains viz. Health Information Science, Geo Information Science etc. Higher Educational Institutes (HEIs) in India doing well in respect of starting of new programs and new age degrees. The Private universities are suitably contributing for the development of Information Science and Technology field for other domains. This paper is a case study; and investigation of private universities in India with reference to domain centric Information Science/ IT programs.
