DELNET (Developing Library Network) organises the National Convention on Library, Knowledge and Information Networking (NACLIN) every year in partnership with various institutions. This year it is partnering with the IFP to hold the NACLIN 2014 in Pondicherry between 9th and 11th December 2014. The convention is expected to draw over 250 librarians from across India and will be inaugurated by the former President of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
NACLIN 2014 will be devoted to discussing how a paradigm change can take place in libraries and information centres and how the focus can shift from collection building to establishing connections and collaborations in the knowledge domain. The convention is scheduled for three days. The first day will be entirely devoted to conducting a tutorial on the following topic: Managing Libraries through Open Source Software Packages: Collections to Connections. The next two days will focus on the theme of the National Convention, i.e. From Building Collections to Making Connections: Transforming Libraries in the Knowledge Era.
