The Mission of libraries is to offer equal access to information for every citizen. Equally, in the Digital Era, the use of Digital resources and use of emerging technologies for learning and Research is inevitable. Today’s Libraries are duty bound to meet the expectations of their stakeholders. Accordingly, the Libraries across the globe are advancing with latest innovations in Libraries like Big Data; Artificial Intelligence; Machine learning; Data visualisation; IOT; User-focused interfaces & applications; Augmented Reality; the digital interface for printed books etc.
Hence, the LIS Professionals serving in different Libraries need to learn more about the advancements happening in the other part of the world and to enable them to compete with the Global community of Librarians.
