This blog is a brief description of my time as a Commonwealth Professional Fellow at the Learning Resources Centre, Burroughs Library, Middlesex University, Hendon Campus, London, U.K. The journey of my fellowship started on January 16, 2012 and continues up to April 13, 2012. There are and were many people who had been instrumental in this important journey. I would like to stop for a minute to acknowledge all those who have helped me to make it this far. First of all I wish to acknowledge my sincere thanks to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, British Council India, British Council UK, Association of Commonwealth Universities, Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida, India and Middlesex University for providing me with this kind opportunity and support. An International fellow will feel rudderless if he/she doesn’t find a good mentor. In my case it was Mr. Alan Hopkinson, International Projects Consultant at Learning Resources, Middlesex University, London, U.K who has been with me throughout my journey to provide proper guidance, encouragement and support right from the day of my fellowship till this last second. Thank you sir.
I also wish to express my gratitude to Mr. Nick Bevan, Director-Learning Resources Centre, Middlesex University for his kind support, extended facilities and personal attention during the fellowship. My gratitude is to all the staff members of Learning Resource Centre of Middlesex University who have always come forward to help me and share their experience, best practices and training during my stay at Middlesex. I also wish to extend my thanks to past commonwealth fellows Dr. J Sridevi, Dr Prem Chand and Mr. Bharat Gupta for their timely help and guidance for the fellowship. Special thanks to Mr. Joe Victor -Director -South Asia, Middlesex University, Professor Waqar Ahmad’s, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Enterprise Thanks also to all professional friends who hosted me in their institutions and spared their valuable time and imparted their valuable knowledge and expertise amides their busy schedules.
