In order to provide a platform and enable interaction amongst library experts, researchers, academicians, and students for adoption, implementation and utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) towards shaping information paradigms and identifying strength and gaps in library systems, and suggest new models, policies and mechanism for reshaping the traditional libraries into next generation libraries a national conference on “ICT Impact on the Knowledge and Information Management” was organized on 14th September, 2010 by ACCMAN Institute of Management, Greater Noida – a leading new-age B-School founded by Balibhadra Foundation, New Delhi, with the mission to provide high quality, academic relevant and industry focused education at affordable costs.

Chief Guest, Dr. Panjab Singh, Ex Vice-Chancellor, Banaras Hindu University and Member Governing Council, ACCMAN Institute of Management said that today no one can escape technology. He emphasized the need for effective use of knowledge available with the help of technology, and said that possessing technological tools is one aspect, but actual usage is in utilizing those in a synthesized manner for the benefit of users. He wished everyone to get richer by the time this mega conference – a congregation of experts from all over the country, concludes.

Dr. R.K. Chadha, Joint Secretary, Parliament Library, Govt. of India stressed that the libraries must connect on a day to day basis through virtual seminars and other virtual forums the technology provides for improving upon the already existing library facilities. For this, cooperation amongst the institutes and organizations with an attitude of cohesiveness, is a must since in the present scenario of technological development, no one can survive in isolation.

CA Arun Singh, Chairman of ACCMAN Institute said that use of information technology is a must. The society to grow must have intellectual capital and must adopt information technology. In the 21st century, most of the library resources are being made available in electronic formats. e-books and e-journals have become order of the day, since the users tend to prefer e-resources over the printed ones. He complimented all on Hindi Divas and hoped that some papers would be presented in Hindi too.

Prof. (Dr.) D.S. Narban, Director, ACCMAN Institute of Management, complimented the validity of the Five Laws of Library even in the era of technology; and, drawing reference to the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), Colon Classification, and other classification systems in use, emphasized the need of having 'one single universally acceptable classification system' in the world that through technology has already turned into a global village.

Dr. Satya Prakash Singh, Librarian, ACCMAN Institute of Management proposed a vote of thanks to the participants.
