Interdisciplinary approach to knowledge.

Abstract:“Globalization” is overshadowing all realms of knowledge, operational undertakings, and interactions throughout the world. Academic institutions are no exception. The scope of academic programs is blending very intricately various disciplines and geographical spheres. Areas within “Social Sciences,” “Humanities,” “Sciences,” “Technologies,” and “Health Sciences” are seeing the addition of the prefix “GLOBAL.” As libraries have been considered a gateway of knowledge for academic pursuits of all kinds, the effect of globalization is posing new challenges. This presentation will report on possible ways libraries may confront this challenge. Additionally, we will discuss some of the grey areas and unsolved challenges, soliciting feedback and suggestions.
