Dear Professional Friends,
Please reserve the first half of 31st December for the following important
*Year-end Half Day LIS Meeting on*
*Newton's first Law of Librarians: Pushing the Libraries to the future?*
LIS Academy is a professional Charitable Trust which aims at providing
need-based services for the advancements in Library and Information Science
(LIS) Profession. The Academy in collaboration with Department of Public
Libraries, Bangalore has planned to organize a half day year-end
get-to-gather for LIS Professionals of Bangalore.
*Newton's first Law of Librarians: Pushing the Libraries to the future?*
Newton's First Law of Motion: ?A body at rest remains at rest unless acted
upon by an outside force?. Said another way, we tend to do things the way
we've always done them. This makes change very hard. Information doesn?t
sit still, so why should librarians? And once a librarian is in motion,
should he stay in motion?
This can be answered by experimenting with different models of service
delivery. In addition to the traditional approach?sitting at the reference
desk?the librarians are providing on-call and ?roving? reference services.
Their goal is to see which method best meets the information needs of users.
