From intelligent cataloguing systems that employ Machine Learning Algorithms to IoT-enabled sensors that monitor and adjust environmental conditions to preserve delicate manuscripts, smart libraries are redefining the reader experience today.

In this backdrop, IILM University, Gurugram in association with the Gurugram and Haryana Library Association held a two-day International Conference on “Innovations in Smart Libraries: Redefining the Future of Information Management” to deliberate the future of library services in the digital era on May 10-11.

Over the course of two dynamic days, an array of library heads, managers, and IT professionals converged to exchange ideas and share transformative insights. The interactive sessions delivered a platform for attendees to comprehend breakthrough innovations, cutting-edge technologies, and dynamic strategies that can potentially transform the way libraries function.

”The integration of technology is revolutionising the library experience, with the emergence of promising technologies like AI and analytics to reach out to people.

Today, everything is at our disposal with just the click of a button, and with that, the whole scenario of libraries is transforming. However, the core purpose of libraries remains the same – empowering individuals and communities in the pursuit of knowledge. It is our task to keep re-inventing for this purpose,” said Prof. (Dr.) Sanjay Kataria, Librarian, Bennett University, Noida.
