Mangalore, Feb 23: A three-day all-India library conference on the theme 'Knowledge Society: Innovations in Librarianship' was inaugurated at St Agnes College here on Thursday February 23. A colourful procession accompanied the dignataries to the venue.

Mysore University vice-chancellor Dr V G Talwar inaugurated the conference and stressed on the need for setting up libraries in rural areas.

The majority of the country's population is concentrated in the villages and hence infrastructure should be set up to fill this void, Dr Talwar urged. He also spoke on the necessity of popularalising the habit of reading through technology among the masses.

Padma Bhushan Dr B M Hegde lauded librarians for computerising the libraries and keeping up with the times. He also termed library a place of 'wisdom' where one can develop intellectually.

The conference was jointly organized by the Indian Library Association, Karnataka State College Librarians' Association (KSCLA) and St Agnes Centre for Post-graduate Studies and Research

Among those present were Indian Library Association president Dharm Veer Singh, KSCLA S L Kadadevaramath, librarian of University of Tennesse Prof Bharath Mehra, St Agnes College principal Dr Prem D'Souza and others.

A book exhibition was also organized as part of the conference.

    Congratulations Dr. Vishala and team including Dr. K. M. Khan, Dr. Ramesha and Mr. Dheeraj for organizing a wonderful professional event.

    I felt a homely atmosphere there at Mangalore and everybody has had a helping hand to assist conference delegates.Also thanks for uploading the conference photos.

    Friends, I have distributed a brochure (on our paid internship programme for MLIS Graduates) among conference delegates) and I am providing you a web-link of the internship programme for those delegates, who did not get that brochure.

    Good morning. Let me first of all regret for the delayed communication due to some unavoidable reason. Coming to the seminar, this is a Conference with a difference., organized in an Innovative way. We have enjoyed every moment of the Conference be it a stay, food, arrangement of conference, transportation, interaction with the delegates, Conference proceedings. I mention a sample of one example. On 20 th Feb i was bit confused about my travel and the time of reaching Mangalore. Because the train i was to reach at mid night of 22nd Feb at 0.50 as schedule.

    I queried about the arrangement of the rooms for me in the Conference. Immediately received thee- Mail as well as the SMS message about my allotment of room No 6 at Swagat, Hotel Panchmahal. I was really happy about the innovative way of such a communication and i reached the Hotel straightaway to Hotel. THIS IS JUST AN SAMPLE EXAMPLE.

    At the time of my presentation of my Paper Presentation only i thanked all the organizers and the way the conference was being organized. It was excellent and incomparable in the history of my attending the Conference ever since 1994 till the latest one. HATS OFF TO ALL THE ORGANIZERS!!!. SPECIALLY Please communicate my hearty Congratulations to each one of the I L A CONFERENCE 2012 ORGANISING TEAM. hope forth coming events would be more innovatiove and informative. I WISH ALL THE BEST!!!

    Keep it up

    With best regards
