Policy of E-Resources:

Kanika Library has framed e-resource development. Major issues considered in the policy are as:

  • Infrastructure and equipment for effective use of e-resources
  • Provision of supporting staff for maintaining e-resources
  • Digitization of PhD thesis of Ravenshaw University
  • Digitization of rare collection and Ravenshavian magazine
  • Preservation of e-resources

Future plans for next five years

  • Construction of an annex building with a floor space of 16,0000sq.ft adjacent to Centenary Library Building to mitigate acute shortage of space to accommodate new books.
  • Digitization of reading materials as per the norms of copyright and IPR etc.
  • Preparation of Institutional repository.
  • Organization of seminars, conference and workshops related to information technology and library.
