With a view to helping research work, the administration of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (Bamu) has launched a CD Library having as many as 2,500 CDs of Ph D theses and books.
Although the Central Library at Bamu has thousands of Ph D theses and lakhs of books, their copies are limited. Because of this, many a time students would not able to get a thesis or a book they want for reference. The university, therefore, has launched a CD Library to help students study Ph D theses and other books on computers through CDs.
Vice chancellor Dr Vijay Pandharipande inaugurated the CD Library at a programme organised to mark the birth anniversary of the Father of the Indian Library Science Dr S R Ranganathan yesterday.
Dean of faculty of Social Science Dr Vilas Khandare, Dr Ashwini Vaishnav, Dr Sachin Deshmukh, librarian Dr Dharmaraj Veer and Dr Rameshwar Pawar were also present.
Speaking at the programme, Dr Pandharipande said many technical changes had taken place in library science in the recent years and urged students to make the most of the information technology.
Registrar Dr Dhanraj Mane said the Central Library had undertaken many novel projects aimed at helping research students. Earlier, Dr Dharmaraj Veer made an introductory speech. Satish Padme conducted the proceedings and Anil Khartade proposed a vote of thanks.
