A digital library is one of the very important academic equipments that the National University of Rwanda (NUR) in Huye District (Butare), has been missing for better academic excellence. < ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
While launching a digital library at the University, NUR's vice-rector in charge of academics and scientific research Prof. Silas Mureramanzi, explained that the digital library, which can work even in the absence of Internet, will greatly save students from the problems caused by a non-reliable Internet connection. He stated that there is need for utilisation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) resources due to the associated immerse benefits to the development of a country. This initiative would help students and lecturers to get the required material related to the course quickly. Lecturers will be able to post their lecture material and assignments online. The students at NUR enthusiastically welcomed the new research innovation device as a supplement to the traditional library.
