Abstract

Attempts have been made in this paper to highlight the staff-pattern of the Imperial Library of the Mughals, especially at the time of Akbar. The library, then, was treated as Buyutat or Royal household (Department), so a Mir Simon, a Diwan and a Wazir had managed it. The posts have carefully been compared to present days Director, Deputy Director and Assistant Director respectively. Similarly the posts of a Nazim and a Darogha have also been compared to present day's posts of a Librarian and Assistant Librarian. Comparative study of other general staff has also been shown in this article.
