About School Librarians Workshop: The workshop was conceived as a Capacity Building Leadership Training program for School Librarians of India. School Libraries and School Librarianship in India have lagged behind; continue to work in isolation for long, consequently resulting in slow and retarded professional development. Collaboration and Team Work are the mantras for Professional Development and excellence in Education and Schooling. It is in this context that a Capacity Building Leadership Training Workshop is worked out for School Librarians of India.
