Late Shri Ashok Jambhekar

Late Shri Ashok Jambhekar was the founder President of Management Libraries Network (MANLIBNET) who initiated the idea of this Network in the year 1998 by holding 1st Annual MANLIBNET Convention at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in collaboration with Ahmedabad Management Association.

Late Shri Jambhekar dedicated his life to the upliftment of library profession and established several best practices during his remarkable career. He was known for simplicity, austerity, brevity, honesty and integrity. He was a humble, modest and down to earth person who never complained. He was indeed an institution builder and teacher of teachers and friend in strictly Indian traditions.

He left us on the morning of June 2nd, 2003 while working in Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow.

MANLIBNET dedicates all these years to its founder President Late Shri Ashok Jambhekar who has always been a great source of inspiration for all of us.
