A successful two day Workshop for Librarian

A two day Workshop on Information Literacy for Higher Education organized by the Library of the South Eastern University of Sri Lanka with the assistance of the National Institute of Library and Information Sciences (NILIS) for Librarians serving South Eastern University of Sri Lanka and Eastern University, Sri Lanka was held at the Auditorium of the Staff development Centre of the South Eastern University on Wednesday and Thursday.

Speaking at the Inauguration session the Vice Chancellor of the South Eastern University of Sri Lanka Prof. MMM Najim who participated as Chief Guest at the Workshop said that Librarian should be conversant in their field and they should always show a keen interest in updating their knowledge to suit the present scientific and modern world. Information Technology in the present context of life plays a significant role and all should be prepared for those challenges, specially, the academics and librarians serving in the higher educational Institutes of this nature.

Hence, I request the Librarians who are present here to be conversant in their field and ever prepared to learn new things. Then only they would be in a position to face the academics. Therefore, the Workshops of this nature would be very much useful to the Librarians. Hence, all should participate in the Workshop without fail.

Director o the NILIS Presanna Ranaweera gave an introductory speech at the session where Librarian (SEUSL) MM Rifaudeen and Librarian (EUSL) M.Arulanathi proposed welcome address and vote of thanks respectively.

Messrs: Presanna Ranaweera, PG.Premadasa, UP Alahakone and MM Rifaudeen were the resource personnel and Information and information literacy, Information literacy models(Empowering 8), Information skills(Analyticalskills printed) and importance of Information literacy in Higher Education were the topics they discussed at length.
