First and Largest Academic Social Network of LIS Professionals in India
We all are quite aware of the present condition of community libraries/public libraries, and other information centres working, level of their development, collection/holdings, offered services, issues and challenges. If we focus on the collection, we find personalized type collection, and based on the collections and their users, the library offers services to its users. These libraries are equally punctual towards their service hours and professionally ethical like other libraries of research and academic organisations. In the age of information, information at fingertip; people prefer visiting the internet in their mobile phones before any formal organisations like a library. It is not with libraries only, the internet has taken the primary consultation business of various professions such as law, medical, etc. If we library professionals extend help to our nearby community libraries in building their technical infrastructures such as information portal, websites, social media pages, alerts and messages to reach their users then the importance/implications of public/community libraries can be revived which is foggy and picture is blur in the race of digital publications and advance services.
As we unanimously accept that the community library holds the collection which is exactly as per the needs (information need) of the community people. Apart from these we library except can enrol ourself with local libraries as a Human Library also subject to our time and interests.
With this short note, I am inviting LISLinks members to put forth their views in support or against my thinking and idea of helping libraries of our locality and community.
We are able to make a portal/Website/Social Media Page but how the organization permit us to do this?
Voulenteerly, you must try to establish communications ensuring proper and on-time help.
