The second was held in Pune in partnership with the Information Resource Centre - TCS, Pune. At this second Conclave it was decided to rename the conclave with expanded scope as Library Technology Conclave (LTC), to be held annually in partnership with a leading library & Information Centre.
The First Library Technology Conclave - "LTC 2018" in India
Library is an ever evolving social institution constantly driven by technologies of the day. Information resources & services provided by the library and devices used by the library users are products of technology. The method of usage - search, browse, study, share, cite, analyse, measure and personalize – involves using many sophisticated technologies.
Investment in technologies suffers high risk of obsolescence. Hence, intelligent selection, implementation and usage of technology are always professional challenges for librarianship as the technologies change too fast to adapt and experience.
LTC 2018 is designed to focus on technologies behind the functions and services of libraries of today & tomorrow.
