Conference Chair Message

After a period of around 5 years, Pakistan Library Association is now planning to hold International Conference in 2013. The theme of this Conference is “Champions of Libraries” provide an opportunity for transmission and sharing of practical knowledge based on latest research and are considered as an essential part of academic programmes of all good universities. As a member of the group of persons associated with the Pakistan Library Association from last many years, I am happy to see that the PLA is now working according to the professional norms and promotion of research culture in Pakistan through seminars, workshops and conferences. I am also glad to know that many library professionals, academicians and students shall participate in this conference. The Conference should be a good occasion for them to share the latest knowledge in the field of Library & Information Science.

The role of the Libraries in the development of society, conservation, preservation and dissemination of knowledge and in the use of modern technologies is widely accepted. Now the world economy has been transformed into knowledge economy. With the change and advancement in science & technology, the role of Libraries & Librarians has also been changed. Now, the Librarian is more than a librarian. He performs as Information Professional, Knowledge Manager and Information Resource Specialist.

Organizing an International Conference is always a big challenge and I am confident that the team of Pakistan Library Association, Punjab University Library & Punjab Library Foundation would hold this conference to the expectations of the LIS professional community and our patrons. I extend my thanks to the organizing team who is working day & night for the Conference and wish them all success.
