VADODARA: There is some good news for thousands of students who throng the reading room of Shrimati Hansa Mehta Library at M S University. The university is planning to air-condition (AC) the entire reading room.
"We are hoping to get the entire reading room converted into a centrally air-conditioned room within the next six months. This will help students who utilize the reading room for long hours every day," university librarian Dr Mayank Trivedi told TOI on Tuesday on the sidelines of a function to inaugurate institutional repository (IR), open knowledge gateway, book lift, generator and mobile racks facility at the library.
Students and teachers visiting the Shrimati Hansa Mehta Library of M S University will now be able to get access to all the e-resources free. Also, they will not have to worry about power failures and space crunch in the reading rooms. The university library has added new infrastructure.
The institutional repository (IR), a link of which has been provided on the library's website, will help researchers of the university in collecting, preserving and disseminating their intellectual output in digital form.
"Faculties themselves will be able to upload pre-referred papers, post-referred papers, conference papers, book chapters, reports through IR, which is now also an important component for NAAC accreditation," Trivedi said.
The open knowledge gateway facility on the other hand will provide free access to e-resources, including e-books, e-journals, encyclopedias, newspapers, e-thesis and video lectures, which can be also downloaded and printed.
Using funds granted by University Grants Commission, the library has added physical infrastructure like mobile racks, lift and generator.
"This new mobile racks will not only solve the dust problem but are also easily movable solving the space problem at the library," he said.
