This study explores the research performance of LIS faculties from Central Universities of India through Web of Science using scientometric indicators. It was observed that there were 81 LIS faculties working in 17 Central Universities in India. A total of 157 unique publications were retrieved belonging to 42 LIS faculties from 14 Central Universities. BibliometrixR and VOSviewer were used for analyzing and visualization of data retrieved from WoS. Mukherjee B, of BHU, emerged as the most influential author (faculty) of LIS in terms of publications, citations, h-index and g-index. BHU was the most productive Central University in terms of LIS research. DESIDOC Journal of Library and Information Technology emerged out as the most productive source for LIS research while Scientometrics was the most cited source. “India” and its related terms were central to LIS research as observed from author’s keyword analysis.
