Published on

School Libraries are the heart of the educational system. They play a pivotal role in nurturing knowledge and improving the quality of education. They not only help to inculcate the habit of reading but also a thirst for new knowledge. The advent of ICT has opened the doors of possibilities. Now the role of School Libraries has changed from mere information transfer to content generation. The School Libraries are becoming Information Clearing Houses and as such they will constantly change and adjust their role as catalysts in the Information Society.
