"What's Next in Libraries?" International Conference

January 21-25, 2015

NIT Campus, Silchar, Assam, India

Hosted by the Mortenson Center for International Libraries of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and The National Institute of Technology, Silchar.

Creating a vibrant and sustainable library ecosystem requires that librarians and libraries adapt, change, and innovate to stay relevant to users and home institutions. What are the current trends in successful academic and public libraries? How do we as professionals re-imagine library space that is flexible and attractive? How do we develop partnerships that advance the mission of our libraries?

These are among some of the questions that will be examined and discussed by librarians from the United States, India, and other countries who will interact during this three-day conference to build skills, learn from colleagues, and return home with practical ideas.

READ Global's India Country Director Geeta Malhotra is a featured speaker.
