Kumar, Vijendra ; Gupta, Dinesh Kumar

Abstract

The paper examines development of continuing professional education on digital library in India based on the announcement of postings on LIS-Forum related to seminars, conferences, workshops and short-term training programs on digital libraries held in India during April 2003 to October 2015. The paper finds that 73 continuing professional development programs were held on digital library in India during the period. Due to the increasing amount of information available in digital format, education and training for digital libraries has become necessary. There is a need to hold more continuing professional development opportunities on digital libraries in India.
