Mahendra ties with HP for digital archiving

The drive to make Mahendra Engineering College (MEC) accessible to its students anytime anywhere has inked the deal with Hewlett-Packard (HP) to help implementing its Dspace Solution and ProCurve University initiative.

DSpace software platform serves a variety of digital archiving needs for research and educational institutions worldwide including e-thesis, electronic record management, publishing ect.

The college has recently opted for a digital repository solution from HP. The repository could also house digitized courseware (such as NPTEL), project reports, e-books, workshop content, lab manuals, whitepapers and video lectures. All of these elements could potentially be enabled through web access, which basically means that a student can access this content from a remote location through the Internet.
