Welcome to OSSLM 2016

Workshop Theme

The online environment is becoming more and more popular and an integral part of knowledge society. There is a huge transformational change in the scholarly publishing from print to digital environment. Similarly, the role of Libraries becomes more service oriented rather than collection oriented. Therefore, in this changing scenario of libraries the focus has been shifted from the use of traditional tools and techniques towards creating an online platform using open source software to render better library services. The main theme of the workshop is to provide theoretical as well as technical hands-on training to the Library and Information Science Professionals.
