Get set for an International Conference on Digital Libraries

MUMBAI: Wouldn’t it be really good if all the knowledge from across the world can be accessed from one place? That is what a recent initiative by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) aims to do. TERI is organising the International Conference on Digital Libraries (ICDL) from 27-29 November 2013 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.

In addition to conference sessions, thematic workshop-cum-panel discussions are planned to provide a deeper meaning to the theme of the conference.

It also aims to provide an international forum for sharing of experiences among researchers, educators, practitioners, and policy makers from a variety of disciplines such as library and information science, information and communication technology, archival and museum studies, knowledge management and many areas in the fields of Science, Social sciences and Humanities.
