(6 January 2016) The Asian Library Association & Indian Institute of Management, Indore, are calling for papers for the International Conference on Digital Governance: Innovation Information and Libraries, 14-16 April 2016, Indore, India.
Context and Purpose of the Conference:
Digital India is a flagship programme of the Government of India with the vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. The Conference proposes to explore libraries as a broad foundation for interaction with information and information management in a digital world in furtherance of the Digital India vision.
ASIALA 2016 aims to delve into the issue of Digital Libraries with a focus that supports not only information seeking and discovery but also community interaction and collaboration. Libraries can play a key role in achieving the Digital India objectives, both by providing intellectual and social spaces and as access points. Further, libraries can sensitise the user community about the appropriate use of information through training, research and capacity building programmes.
The Conference intends to engage the participants in a discussion of critical issues faced by practitioners managing library resources, functions and services in the light of the Digital India Programme.
