Embracing digital innovation: an inspired Asia and Oceania share their Global Vision
Nepal Library Association (NLA) is a non profit nongovernmental organization established in 1980 A.D. with a mission to develop, promote and improve library and information services in Nepal. NLA is comprised of well trained library professionals in Nepal. It has been persistently involved in the development of efficient library systems in the country ensuring ease of access, affordability, acceptability, quality, equity and equality of library services.
When we talk about an objective or a goal we mean a state which we would like to achieve in the future. Objectives define strategies or implementation steps to attain the identified goals. Unlike goals, objectives are specific, measurable, and have a defined completion date. They are more specific and outline the “who, what, when, where, and how” of reaching the goals.
The dissemination and marketing of information through publications is one of the major objectives of the association. In this regard, NLA has been publishing several reports/ newsletters, etc.
A glimpse of historical activities:
NLA has been regularly organizing 35 days Basic Library and Information Science Training Level 3 for personnel of different libraries and individuals since 1991 A.D.
The translated of BSLA (Bulding Strong Library Association) Training Package in Nepali is going to be completed in Nepali language. NLA will continue this training in community Libraries.
