Soon Madurai Kamaraj University library will digitise its library. Vice-chancellor of the university, R Karpaga Kumaravel has taken several initiatives as part of implementing e-Governance and e-Content in administration and academic affairs at the university and make the institution an international centre of learning.
One of the initiative is to digitise library books, so that students can refer books through Internet anytime anywhere simultaneously. The digitalisation of the library would be done through the Consortium of Educational Communication(CEC), an inter-university centre of UGC on electronic media. The project which is unique in the country as no other Indian university has yet thought of it, will be implemented in phases.
