Introduction 

As we hope to enter the endemic of the COVID-19 saga, it is time to take stock of the situation across sectors, tackle challenges and maximize opportunities. For libraries to navigate this landscape, we need to embrace means and avenues of entrepreneurship to ensure relevance in the new normal. The increased focus on e-learning has had a strong bearing on libraries to be able to provide large amount of e-Resources, coupled with cutting edge digital services towards meeting the demands of teaching-learning. In other words, the pace and efficacy of digital transformation will shape the future of our libraries.

Today, the world is witnessing a paradigm shift in terms of how information and knowledge is generated, stored, accessed and disseminated. With the advent of digital technologies, libraries are reinventing themselves to evolve, adapt and thrive. Thankfully, both libraries and users are beneficiaries of this change. As a nation, we need to take cognizance of these developments and leverage the enormous opportunities offered by the digital era.

Librarianship therefore must reposition itself to achieve excellence. We need to focus on innovative content acquisition models, out of the box thinking in extending library services, leveraging technologies, and explore new modes of reaching the user community.

Given this backdrop, the Jio Institute and AICTE are jointly organizing a 5-Day International Workshop on ‘Designing Digitally Robust Research Libraries for the 21st Century’ during 25-29 April 2022, for the benefit of Indian Library professionals, drawn from the technical institutions, universities, and other academic/research institutions. 

Scope of the Workshop and Expected Outcome

The programme is targeted at librarians, information professionals, library/information technology academics and to those involved in such aspects of digital information/assets management  as infrastructure; information services; learning-teaching support; research support; metadata; content management; preservation; system design; implementation; interface design; human-computer interaction; collection development; intellectual property; privacy; electronic publishing; document genres; multimedia and associated applications/theoretical topics.
