CENTER FOR RESEARSH IN LEARNING RESOUCE CENTRE (LIBRARY):

  • The foundations of the relationship between researchers and research libraries are beginning to be tested by shifts in the way that researchers work. The rise of e-research, interdisciplinary work, cross-institution collaborations, and the expectation of massive increases in the quantity of research output in digital form all pose new challenges. These challenges are about how libraries should serve the needs of researchers as users of information sources of many different kinds, but also about how to deal with the information outputs that researchers are creating.
  • Developing Centre for Research in learning resource Centre (Library) an existing collection of books and other materials involves several functions: creating the oversight, defining the mission and purpose of the organization, securing funding, planning, developing a collection, securing or building an appropriate space.

RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT:
