The workshop was focused on how to improve the professional development of the School Libraries and  School Librarianship in India that seemed to have lagged behind due to isolated approach. The message that came out from the workshop was very clear - “Collaboration and Team Work are the mantras for Professional Development and excellence in Education and Schooling.” The workshop was conceived as a capacity building exercise. It is in this context that a Capacity Building Leadership Training Workshop is worked out for School Librarians of India.
