IITB Central Library 2.0 Service

3-days Workshop on Meeting Users Expectations

Dear All

Central Library, IIT Bombay is organizing a 3-days Workshop on Meeting
Users Expectations from 27 – 29 May 2013.

Academic and Research Libraries India have been operating in ICT-enabled
environment for more than a decade now and providing access to a large
number of electronic journals, books and data-bases to their users.
While there is a general perception that the provision and accessibility
of electronic resources have helped the end-users in their academic and
research endeavours, no efforts have been made to assess whether web-based
resources and services have actually helped them. This workshop,
therefore, aims to bring together all the stake-holders, i.e. Users,
Librarians, and Publishers/database producers, to get a holistic view of
the impact these services have made / will make on their work as well as
on their use of library and information services, and will identify the
areas for future improvements. The outcome of this workshop is expected
to help the participants in planning and developing a strategy / road-map
for futuristic library services. The final day of workshop is planned to
provide hands-on training on KOHA, an open source library management
software. The workshop is limited to 60 participants.

Registration is free for participants from INDEST-AICTE Consortium member
institutions. However, they have to pay Rs 1500/- per person towards
accommodation. Registration Fee Rs 2500/- per person for participants from
Industry and R&D Institutes (Rs 4000/-, if accommodation is needed).
