Summary: We live in the information age, where access to e-resources is very easy and friendly through Internet. If anyone needs quick information, they just go to Internet and just a few quick clicks, huge amount of e-resources will be appeared before the Internet users. For this reason, some of us might be thinking, "COOL. I don't have to go to the library. I can do all my research ONLINE." Do you think that Internet is your solution? No, Internet might be very helpful but it doesn’t give us appropriate solution. Hence, Internet could not be the substitute for the library. It's a tool best used in addition to traditional research sources. There are some confusions arise amongst us on Internet and Library. To give a clear and understandable perception on this issue, BALID is going to organize a Seminar on Connects – people to people, people to place, people to library, people to Internet, people to learning and finally, Library vs Internet.
BALID members, participants and professionals are kindly requested to complete the REGISTRATION form below. There is no fee for participating the seminar but registration is a must.

Registration deadline: 17 February 2019
