Abstract

Multiculturism and Academic Libraries: a case study of Santal Tribe of West Bengal, India

Multiculturism is a very important concept in library and information science, and it has emerged recently. The Santal tribes are one of the largest tribal groups in South Asia and Santali female students are not much progressive. Therefore, to bring them in the mainstream, and to socially include them there, the academic libraries play an important role. A college library has been chosen to demonstrate how these students are helped by the librarian and his staff to be made socially inclusive. The role of this library in solving the multicultural issue is reflected in this paper.
