I am Mallikarjun Dora, presently working at Vikram Sarabhai Library, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad as Professional Assistant. Here I have been working since February 2008. Prior to this I was at Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode as an internee, I can say I was lucky to in IIMK library to start up my career. Most of the new technologies and trends are in our library filed I learned from there, it is provide me a lot of confidence and a solid foundation to build up my career. There i had participated in two workshops; one is on Dspace Institutional Repository Software and International Workshop on Greenstone Digital Library software. IIMK library is not only a place to learn, but a place where you have the freedom to do an experiment. Another best thing of IIMK is its surrounded with natural beauty, its situated in the top of the hill in rainy time you fell that you are near to the heaven and flowing with the clouds After all Kerala is the God’s own country.
Studying in Sambalpur University is one of my best times in my whole educational career. The University is surrounded by small hilly area out from the city pollution, quiet and peaceful place. Our department has its own beauty mixing with faculty of two generation (Technology and Theory). In my short span ofcareer, I have seen a good number of Library Science department all over India, from my observation I can say it is one of the best department in India.
My higher secondary and Graduation was from Rajendra College one of the oldest college in Orissa, it is 50 km far from my village (small village most of the people are farmer).
I love to write poetry, and it was in the pick when I was doing my graduation (publish few in the college magazine), listening old Hindi songs (Mukesh, Latha), traveling and reading books are my hobby.
