Source of Data : Report No. 23 and 38 A Date of Data taken from the Website: 23/01/2021 The present data study has been undertaken by retrieving data from All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) on January 23, 2020, for the period from 2014-15 to 2018-2019, which can be accessed at (AISHE, 2021). The AISHE was started in India in 2010-11 under the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education, Government of India. Table 1: Indian Library Staff in Various Groups and Students Ratio in Higher Educational Institutes from 2014-15 to 2018-2019 Table 2: Total Indian Library Staffs of all Groups (A,B,C, and D) and Students in Higher Educational Institutes from 2014-15 to 2018-2019 Table 3: Year by Year % Growth of Indian Library Staffs and Students Ratio in Higher Educational Institutes from 2014-15 to 2018-2019 The tabulated data reflects the distribution of group wise Library staff engaged in higher education institutions across India and students enrolled against different courses thereof during the academic years 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19. Although the ratio of library staff and students could have been easily drawn from the latest academic year, viz. 2018-19, the idea was to draw average figures for the last five years to make findings more valid. The data reflected in the table can be manipulated differently, however in our ongoing study we shall be talking about percentage growth in enrolment of students over the years to that of growth in library staff during the same period, so as to find out whether the growth is proportionate or not. We shall be talking about the student staff ratio on the basis of average figures. We shall be computing average annual corresponding growth of both students and staff during the period of study against each individual state and will work out average figures at the national level with some other allied aspects of the study.
