Prof. Dr. Shahid Munir, Chairman, PHEC, attended the 2nd PLWO virtual conference “International Conference on Transformation of Knowledge Repository Into Knowledge Economy” as Chief Guest. Addressing the participants, Dr. Shahid said that we are living in a developing world where one institution, either private or public, cannot afford to develop a state-of-the-art library and laboratories. However, this can be achieved through collaborations and resource sharing. For instance, universities should reach such agreements by which students of all institutions may use the modern libraries and laboratories of any other institution in the town. Libraries should also share their human resources for capacity building of other libraries where this element is lacking. Moreover, if we want to improve the present dismal state of libraries, we need to integrate the modern emerging trends and technologies like Library Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Institutional Repository, and Digital Library Services into the library services being offered in various libraries in Pakistan.
