Summary: We live in the information age, where access to e-resources is very easy and friendly through the Internet. If anyone needs quick information, they just go to the Internet and just a few quick clicks, a huge amount of e-resources will have 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 the Internet is your solution? No, the Internet might be very helpful but it doesn’t give us an appropriate solution. Hence, the Internet could not be a substitute for the library. It’s a tool best used in addition to traditional research sources. There are some confusions arise amongst us on the 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 the library, people to the 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 in the seminar but registration is a must.

Registration deadline: 17 February 2019
