BACKGROUND
Automation and digitalization of libraries has a topic of past decade and both of these are considered as a must for any library today. What is currently trending and emphasized upon is innovative practices adopted by libraries globally those attract and bind the users to the library.

Some libraries talk about more and more technology adoption; RFID technology, mobile-apps for providing user services; reaching to the patrons at their doorstep, opening library kiosks i.e. to bring library services to the users. Others talk about innovative library facilities aspect that include being knowledge partner rather than a resources provider only; continually training and guiding the users in using library resources.

Facilities also include developing facilities for differently abled sections of the users. Another aspect of innovative practices in libraries includes innovation in resources development and procurement. This aspect encompasses again technology aspect as well as order on demand or pay per view procurement and so on. Innovation in staff management and overall management of library and its operations are some other important dimensions. New technology and methods are adopted by various libraries for efficient and timely delivery of their services to users.

Publishers are also using innovative technologies in producing and providing contents to the libraries. Rather than just books or journals, they are developing interactive and comprehensive learning modules where one can learn at his/her pace; can judge the performance or understanding levels and so on. Innovation in libraries also include introducing new services that directly appeal to users and as per their changing requirements.

Innovation is not static and new innovative practices keep evolving as per change in users needs, technology and resources. Innovation is a continued journey.
