Dear Sir,

We congratulate you on making SIS2008 a grand success.

We were particularly impressed by you & your team's ability to manage an event of this scale with such panache & making it an experience that entire library fraternity would look forward to attending every year in future.

We believe the quality of speakers & paper presentations would have left an indelible impression on young & intelligent audience, especially inaugural speech by the director of IIMI, presentations on "Role of Librarians in 21st century by Dr. Roshan Raina, Emerging trends in Librarianship by Dr H. Anil Kumar, your paper presentation on Library Networks sighting a practical example of Indo-Libnet, an informal talk by Prof Panighri on Librarianship" in particular.

Few other things that made SIS2008 a mesmerizing experience was the impeccable hospitality by your entire team and our visit to Nakhrali Dhani. I was personally indebted when one of our staff working on library data conversion project thanked me and shared his once in lifetime experience at the venue, we personally thank you for this.

We sincerely thank you, Mr.Gopal, Mr.Vilas, Ms.Monika, Ms. Aparna, Mr.Sanny & other team members and promise to extend our heartfelt support for organizing such an event in future.
