OPAC at WUD

“A university is usually described as a community where scholars and teachers are the head, students are the body and the library its heart.” The philosophy truly reflects from a quote from the Report of the Radha krishnan Commission on University Education “ The library is the heart of all the University’s work; directly so, as regards its research work, and indirectly as regards its educational work which derives its life from research work.”  Keeping in pace with the above spirit and WUD’s goal to “promote quality education, the spacious, Central Library offers a platform for research, innovation and development. It has a collection of more than 12000 documents in print and electronic format. The Library offers a balanced combination of print and digital collections. The online databases like MAGZTER, NPTEL, NDLI, SWAYAM and professional bodies offers a truly rewarding stimulus infrastructure and experience for students and academia community.

 

I just conducted two orientation programs for Faculty and students of our university. It was primarily to initiate the campus to OPAC (Open Public Access Catalogues) and to encourage digital and virtual interactions with the library . OPAC is an online bibliography of a library collection that is available to the public. OPACs developed as stand-alone online catalogs, often from VT100 terminals to a mainframe library catalog. With the arrival of the Internet, most libraries have made their OPAC accessible from a server to users all over the world. With OPAC the digital access  to our library has expanded and the catalogs are now truly interactive.

Our digital library now is a collection of platform for research, innovation and development. It has a collection of more than 12000 documents in print and electronic format. The Library offers a balanced combination of print and digital collections. The online databases like MAGZTER, NPTEL, NDLI, SWAYAM and professional bodies offers a truly rewarding stimulus infrastructure and experience for students and academia community.
