  15. 15. Conclusion and Recommendations • Theories and practices of SR Ranganathan are still taught in library schools and iSchools across the world. • Citations in LIS Textbooks are less visible in GSC, Scopus and WoS. • Many students are engaged in doing projects/ assignments on Ranganathan’s theories and practices as part of their continuous evaluation process. • Many of these assignments are made available online. But Indian students’ works are less visible. – Encourage them to publish online.
  16. 16. Conclusion and Recommendations • Encourage LIS students, researchers & practitioners to write review of SRR’s books on platforms such as GoodReads.com, Amazon.in, Amazon.com, Google Books, etc.. • Promote Ranganathan’s works by publishing eBooks in different digital formats, such as, ePub (specially for visually impaired or low-vision students), textual PDF, Mobi, etc. • Low-cost Kindle eBooks can be made available to millions of Kindle readers and smart phone users. – Open Access dissemination may also be explored.
