Libraries, information, knowledge and all that

Last year, I attended the meeting of the Cornell Council, of which I was a member.  I attended the talk by the Head Librarian of the University, when she explained, that libraries were the gateway to knowledge, and opened a window of information, opportunity, and that the task of the librarian was to enable the search of the student and teacher, as they looked for knowledge.

Yesterday, I was so happy to see, that our IT team, has made it possible for students to use our library page, to look for information.  For books, ebooks, new, and journal articles.

And students across the campus will be able to borrow books from any Somaiya Vidyavihar library.

Now, for us to be able to create an environment to be able to take advantage of the same.
