More time for discussions and activities

Dr Rajeev Vij


Further Improvements….

  • Facility for online registration of for training programme will be
  • introduced shortly
  • Training Programme calendar will be uploaded on INMAS
  • webpage soon              
  • Number of lectures per day will be limited to maximum five
  • The future LIS competencies required for providing better LIS
  • services will be in future training programmes

Dr Rajeev Vij


Topics that are going to be Important in Future

Importance and Implementation of user Awareness Programmes

Managing Digital Content

Creation and Management of Digital Collections

Users Profile Management

Open Source Software

Intellectual Property Rights

Connecting to users and Enhancing Library services using social media

Managerial skills in ICT applications in Libraries

Virtual reference service (using instant messaging)

Leadership and soft skills

Disaster Management

Dr Rajeev Vij



LIS training courses should also include a few lectures on interpersonal skills,

orientation, leadership, ethics, motivation, etc.

Annual training schedule should be prepared and uploaded on DRDO website to

enable better planning and participation by the participants

At INMAS, on the last day of all courses, a small quiz is conducted to test the

alertness of the participants during the lectures during training course/workshop.

The top three scorers were awarded. This can be practiced at other places also

The institute & library authorities need to provide necessary motivation to the

employee who upgrades their professional skills by undergoing training

Analysis of training needs for every employee should be conducted every year

This will help in planning future training programme

Number of practical/hands-on hours should be increased by augmenting

ICT infrastructure

Dr Rajeev Vij



Attendance of course participants should be made mandatory during all

training programmes

The frequency of conducting such training courses by DRDO should be

increased and if possible, they should be conducted at different regions

The delivery of course material and power point presentations should be

mailed using electronic medium to the participants and also uploaded

on DRDO intranet site after completion of the training course/workshop

Efforts should be initiated to mail study material to the participants,

well before start of the training course.
