Abstract: The great libraries of the future are not those with great collections but those with great staff, knowledge must be rediscovered in the library before it is used (Lowry, 1991). The trained and dedicated librarian would act as an intermediary in this rediscovery process. The paper highlights the efforts made by CORD, NIRD to identify the information needs of the users, barriers in accessing information, best practices for effective use of information etc were discussed in an open form consisting of working librarians, faculty, experts, library staff etc. to find solutions for the optimum use of Library Resources. Further emphasised the importance of training for the staff/users to serve the user community by using latest technologies, in the similar lines the users also get trained to tap the resources available internally and Globally. For this purpose CORD is conducting three training programmes in an year for the staff and three for the users in this direction.
