The 2016 International Conference on Marching Beyond the Libraries: The Role of Social Media and Networking aims to unfold latest emerging technologies on how information seekers can create, share, or exchange information, ideas in virtual communities and networks trough computer-mediated tools. There is a growing demand to manage the increasing flow of information both in and out of the library optimally, effectively and efficiently. The conference intends to bring together students, LIS scholars, academicians and industry practitioners on a single platform to review the latest trends of social media and networking and its impact upon users. The conference will also review the quality of work required by the library and information professionals for adopting, sustaining, and promoting the new technologies with constructive recommendations. The conference is expected to have wide participation of delegates from India and abroad.
There will be a half day work shop on the theme "Think, Create, and Innovate". In this work shop participants will showcase their creativity towards future librarianship.
