This paper attempts to highlight the collaborative publication trend of library and information science (LIS) faculty members in the select central universities of north India. The data for the study was collected by questionnaire and from the websites of universities. A total of 1292 publications were published by LIS faculty during the period 1978-2014, out of these 854 are multi-authored publications. The study depicts that highest publications are contributed as double-authored. The co-authorship index is highest in 1991 i.e. 294.12 as singleauthored, in 1982 i.e. 153.85 as double-authored, in 1989 i.e. 219.78 as triple-authored and in 2014 i.e. 404.04 as ≥ 4 authored publications. Total authors involved in the publications are 2349. The highest MCC is in 2014 (0.46) and the lowest in 1991 (0).
