Title Librarians' day 2018 (Startup India and Role of Libraries) on 25th August 2018

ADINET in collaboration with MICA, will be conducting a Seminar on 25th August 2018 at MICA, Ahmedabad.

The Seminar theme is: Startup India and Role of Libraries.

21st century India boasts of remarkable initiatives that can catapult the economy of the country to the ranks of the developed countries and one such initiative is developing and nurturing the Indian Startup ecosystem.

More than 10,000 technological, startups now exist in India. The Government provides  many schemes, funds and policy and institutional support to encourage Startups in the country.

The involvement of premier institutions such as IIMs, IITs, NITs, IITs, IISERs, and so on in the Startup activities that includes establishing entrepreneurship cells and technology incubators  calls for a proactive role for libraries to actively participate in this movement and provide information support.

Dynamic Libraries can play an active role in transforming the Indian society into an enterprising one by providing learning spaces, maker spaces, access to Internet, access to numerous subscribed and free online resources and many more services. Hence it would be useful that various Startup schemes should be linked with libraries so that they provide crucial information support that Startups need.
