E-Books to E-Learning: Libraries as Learning Hubs – LTC2019
Informatics India Ltd., Bangalore and Cochin University of Science & Technology (CUSAT), are pleased to announce LTC2019, an annual event, 4th in the series. Informatics is organising this year’s Conclave in partnership with CUSAT, the host-partners of the event.
LTC is different and distinct in its content and format. Its focus is on current and emerging technologies and their implementation and impact studies in libraries and their parent organisations. The vision of LTC is to enable libraries to re-imagine and re-position the libraries in the digital space as an integral part of the learning and research eco-system of the institutions and the society.
E-Learning is the theme of LTC2019 expressed in the Conclave title: From e-Books to e-Learning: Libraries as Learning Hubs. This theme is very unique and challenging to libraries in broadening their service horizon. It opens up new opportunities for libraries to collaborate with faculty to integrate library’s content access and delivery system with e-Learning platform. With decades of knowledge and experience in managing e-resources, libraries can play a pro-active role in the area of content management in the e-Learning space. Libraries around the world have started engaging with faculties in their institutions in a collaborative model to provide support to in e-learning domains. E-learning programs are being used extensively in information literacy programs of libraries. Best practices are already emerging. (e-Learning in Libraries: Best Practices. Edited by Charles Harmon & Michael Messina. 2013).
