Management Libraries Network (MANLIBNET)
The libraries around the world are making all the efforts to provide quality
library and information services. In the process, they are making use of the
technology for optimal utilization of the resources. They are not only using
their own resources but they are joining together to share the information
and resources. The joining together is to form a network. The MANLIBNET
was formed in 1998 to over come the problems and to provide quality services
to the clientele of the managment libraries. The MANLIBNET will address
issues jointly and promote the professionalism as well as contribute to the
overall growth of the libraries. In the process, annual conventions are
organized and so far ten conventions have been organized at different
places. The eleventh convention will be held at Secunderabad. As part of
this activity, MANLIBNET has taken up several other programs such as
publication of newsletter, setting up the local networks and building the
bond between libraries.
