I believe that education is the only important element in raising the bar of human existence and quality of life. In an evolving role of a librarian, I understand that strong work ethics, flexibility and enthusiasm are keys to the success of our evolving new role of a librarian in the web 3.0 or 4.0 world. Through this blog I intend to share my thoughts, views or tools that I come across in my journey.
