Inspiration For Becoming A Law Librarian

I have always been close to legal institution because of my father having worked in a Law School in India for more than 25 years. I went to the same Law School and did LLB. After this I worked for State Judicial system and worked for State’s Highest Court , Punjab High Court in Chandigarh, Punjab, INDIA for about 4 years. After leaving this job I practiced Law for few months but did not like.

In between I acquired Library Science degree and Joined Punjab University Library for about 2 years. After this I moved to the Department of Laws, Punjab University Library (where my father worked for 25 years and I also received my Law degree) as Head Librarian and served until May 1970 when I migrated to USA.

Current Position Challenges

I am in Acquisition and Serials Department now and all thru my careers. I kept buying and updating library collection.
