AADLIS meeting and seminar on “Deep Web”

This years AADLIS (Alumni Association of Dept. of Library and Information Science, Univ. of Kerala) was on 24th of May, 2008.

Although the annual meeting is the only activity of the Association fo the whole year, they have been doing a good work by honouring the old BLISc batch students and PhD and MLISc rank holders. Some endovments are also instituted such as, one by Smt. K.K.Lalitha Bai.

The concept of Deep web (more suitable to be known as “invisible web”) is not clear to most of the professionals working in the field. More classes should be there.

The possibilities of harnessing the information or knowledge hidden in the  deep areas of the surface web (kown or currently searchable web) is enormous. Academic invisible web is a separate area of study.

It is true that, the lion’s share of authentic information such as in databases, catalogues, digital libraries , etc are only available in the deep web which are not indexed and hence not available to all (search engines).

More explorations must be there in the field.

When our teacher speaks

it is like we are listening the sound of a river that always changes

-it is like we are sitting under a tree that re energises our body

-it is like we are on a journey that brings smiles from the strangers

-it is like we are on lap of our mothers listening stories that are not so happy ending

I thank our beloved teacher Smt.Lalitha Lenin, poet,children’s writer and former HOD,DLIS, University of Kerala for her dignified appearance as the Chief guest who inaugurated the activities of “Reader’s Club” for the Academic session 2008-’09.

Her words boost our morale and lead us to explore the terrains less travelled.
