online Gurmat Sangeet Library

For the first time, an online Gurmat Sangeet Library is being established to promote Sikh Sacred Music at global level in comparison to other music traditions. The primary objective of this project is to preserve the publications related to Gurmat Sangeet along with other contemporary relevant research material. For the promotion of Gurmat Sangeet, the process of collection of books, journals, magazines, souvenirs, audio recordings and information regarding Gurmat Sangeet is in continuous progress.

Primarily, the project has been conceived by Dr. Gurnam Singh, Founder Professor & Head, Gurmat Sangeet Chair, Punjabi University Patiala. In 2006, during his visit to Canada, he performed Keertan at various places for the promotion of Gurmat Sangeet Project which was highly appreciated by the community at global level. For the establishment of an Online Library in the loving memory of Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh whose entire life was dedicated to Gurbani Keertan and Naam Simran, under the leadership of honourable Master Ujagar Singh, Bhai Nagina Singh, Bhai Kanwaljit Singh and Bibi Gian Kaur and other members of Akhand Kirtani Jatha, Surrey, Canada raised a donation of rupees 20 lakh within an year for the accomplishment of this project.

On 14 Dec., 2007, Bhai Randhir Singh On-line Library was inaugurated by Vice-Chancellor Dr. Jaspal Singh along with former Jathedar Sri Akal Takht Sahib – Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti, Jathedar Sri Anandpur Sahib – Giani Tarlochan Singh, Bibi Jasbir Kaur Khalsa – Chairperson Sri Guru Gian Parkash Foundation, Singh Sahiba Bibi Inderjit Kaur Yogi, Master Ujagar Singh – Canada and Dr. Gurnam Singh.

Under the patronage of Dr. Jaspal Singh and leadership of Dr. Gurnam Singh and the Project Director Dr. Amritpal Kaur (Professor, Punjabi Literary Studies, Punjabi University Patiala), the members Dr. Harminder Kaur (Technical Assistant), Manpreet Singh (Technical Assistant), Amrinder Singh (Technical Assistant), Amanjot Kaur (Lecturer), Arvinder Singh (Technical Assistant), Satbir, Bikramjeet Singh and Joginder Kaur worked day and night for the accomplishment of this project.

A team of the technical experts including Dr. Kawaljit Singh (Director, Computer Centre), Dr. Gurpreet Lehal (Director, Advanced Centre for Technical Development of Punjabi Language, Literature and Culture), Dr. Dharamvir Sharma (Department of Computer Science), Dr. Saroj Bala (Chief Librarian) helped a lot in this project. Now, with the blessings of the Almighty, this project is being launched on 3rd December, 2010 by our worthy Vice-Chancellor Dr. Jaspal Singh.

Most of the material of the library is available in Punjabi language. Keeping in view the globalization perspective, the titles of various books, research journals and magazines have been transliterated in Roman Script. In the next phase of this project, we will provide the Gurmukhi version, the abstracts and more information relevant to the research work about Sikh Sacred Music.

Punjabi University has dedicated this service to the mankind. All researchers are welcome to this Online Library. For more information and help, you can contact us and your valuable suggestions are welcome.

The Role and Impact of the Internet on Library and Information Services

Examines how the Internet impacts library operations such as library administration, collection development, cataloging, interlibrary loan and document delivery, reference services, and bibliographic instruction.

Since that time, the literature on the Internet and its impact on and role in libraries and research has exploded. A simple keyword search in Library Literature and Information Index, a primary electronic index of library and information science research literature, retrieves over 6,500 items related to the Internet. The dominance of the Internet not only provides great opportunities for libraries to provide better services, but also poses tremendous challenges to librarians and library and information science scholars. This volume includes discussions of current issues and trends, written by scholars and practitioners in the fields of library and information science, computer science, and computer engineering.

Communication Skills Home

Communication Skills Home
Top communication skills is all about making you more effective, happier and better off…

Our belief is that your ability to communicate effectively will determine the quality of the rest of your life. In every area !

Tony Robbins the famous NLP trainer says something very similar. If your communication skills need some work then by default so does every other area of the way that you work, relate or run your business.

The costs of not being able to get your message across are huge.

The amount of money you will make will be severely curtailed. Nobody wants to employ someone or do business with you if you come across in a way that will damage their reputation.

The number of close friendships you will enjoy will be diminished. Just like in the example above. People are aware that they are judged by the company that they keep. You’re certainly great company but it’s a bit like being a diamond. Sometimes you can benefit from a bit of a polish and the removal of some extra bits that don’t add anything to who you are…

Your family life will be less than harmonious and typically you’re going to spend more time debating about who is right than you will working out how to create solutions to your problems.

There are other factors you may not have considered.

The way that you communicate may make other people view you as being less desirable as partners in intimate relationships, business or for social groups. Imagine seeing your dream lover across a crowded bar or coffee shop. You are completely clueless about what to say to them and spend the evening being confused and angry because you can’t come up with the right words. And then you watch , in frustration as they leave with their new friend who has been confidently talking to them all night. Grrrrr…..!

Let’s face it. It’s no fun being on the outside with your nose pressed up against the glass. On the inside everybody else is enjoying success and having fun.

We intend to let you in on ways that you can make yourself better at making your self understood AND at understanding new ways to really “get” what other folks mean when they talk to you.

This may seem unimportant to you right now and that’s OK. The thing is you have never been taught just how important these skills really are. And because they are just skills that means that you can learn them too. Once you have learned them if you practise them on a regular basis they will become part of who you are and people will start to see you differently and treat you better.

The reason that this is the case is because you are judged,( like it or not), on the way that people perceive you. You are judged on who people think you are.

So how do they arrive at their perceptions about you ?

Well there are lots of different things that affect this.

Your body language is the first thing that causes people to make a judgement about you. Body language is an unconscious communication skill. Over 80 % of all human communication is unconscious. That is to say that you are not consciously aware of the information even going in. Think of this as a kind of mental short hand that your brain has developed over hundreds of thousands of years. It would have developed in the savannahs of Africa maybe even before we even descended from the trees.

In that primordial dog eat dog world the first thing we had to decide was ” Is this person going to kill me ?”. This is still hard wired into your brain. Unfortunately even in the modern world our ancient knee jerk reactions kick in.

And you’re not even aware of it.

By modifying the way that you stand and walk you will give people who are important in your life ( or those that you want to be important in your life) a completely different first impression of who you are. First impresssions do count and you only get one chance to make a good first impression

After you’ve made that first contact there are lots of other steps that you will need to take, towards getting what you want.

One important thing to remember.

Be interested in the other person. Genuinely interested.

This next bit may be hard to swallow but everyone ( and this may also include you ) loves being the center of attention. So what can you do to make the other person feel like they are important to you ? What language skills can you use that will get that person believing that you genuinely care about their opinion.

” Wait a minute”, I hear you say…”What about me ? When does my moment of glory come ?”. Maybe you haven’t noticed yet that folks who are genuinely interested in others tend to do better in life. Heck even politicians do alright and most of them are just pretending to care.

Our aim is not to get you into the Whitehouse. We work on the principle that everyone has certain unalienable rights and one of those rights is the right to have great fulfilling relationships with other folks that they want to be with…

Because there is so much information that we have to share with you we have split each of the main areas of communication skills into seperate pages so that you can select the bits you’re most interested in. Simply choose your area of interest from the pages menu on the left of this page. We’re going to be adding more great content to this site as we develop and grow it.
