Libraries without Boundaries : Reaching the Unreachable in Knowledge Era

The enormous growth in the ICT has made the World as Global village and there is an apparent death of distance. The convergence of the computing and communications has also brought a radical change in the way libraries and information centres have been imparting information to the users. There is a paradigm shift from the information based services to the Knowledge based services as Knowledge is considered as a most powerful fact in the development of an economy of a nation and is the fourth wave experienced by the human lives. In these changing scenarios, the libraries have to take a proactive approach and to work for this tectonic change that the Knowledge Society will encompass in its domain. The library professionals can no longer keep themselves in the insulated state away from the challenges which needs to be addressed by them. The Government of India has constituted under the National Knowledge Commission a special group on Libraries and Informatics and has proposed a knowledge based society and the emergence of libraries and network centres as one of the contributing entities for developing a knowledge based society. There is a greater need to provide the citizen focused services and the library services must focus on the common man and we must ensure that the libraries are able to bridge up the gap between the two tiered society of “Knowledge haves” and ‘knowledge have-nots’

It is with this concern that the National Convention on Knowledge, Library and Information Networking (NACLIN 2007) being organized by DELNET at New Delhi in November 2007 to debate various issues on the subject.
