UP colleges to get centralized digital library facility

Lucknow, Aug 22 (IANS) All the 639 colleges affiliated with the Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU) will soon be connected to a central digital library, an official said on Saturday.

Orders have already been issued by the varsity vice chancellor for preparations of a detailed project report for the same, the official said.

The newly appointed Vice Chancellor Vinay Pathak said that over four lakh students study in 639 colleges associated with the UPTU and it has been found that many colleges are unable to afford expensive research journals, modules and e-books.

This prompted the university to establish a centralized digital library, he added.

The digitized library would be based on the vision of late former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam after whose name the new campus of the varsity will soon be named.

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has already announced that a memorial will also be constructed in memory of the late president.
