G. D. Goenka University successfully organised a four-day International Leadership Skills Training workshop for Indian school librarians from 3-7 October 2017 at its campus on Sohna Road, Gurugram, Haryana. The entire workshop was organized by the University and Indian School Library Association (ISLA) in collaboration with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), UN, Netherlands, International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) and the National Library of Singapore.

 

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.
