New Delhi: Introducing a mass change in academics, the much sought out library of the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University is now available online. The varsity students can now access the library from anywhere in the world and can even download and save the data with them forever.
 
The students will no longer be required to issue a book and worry about returning it in due time or paying hefty fines for late submission. In order to provide a 24-hour library to the students, the JNU administration in collaboration with MTNL has launched the online library.

The facility would only be accessed by the help of a password entered by the university students on their computer or laptops. The students would have to pay Rs 199 every month for which the telecom company MTNL will provide them with an internet data card.

However, the teachers will be required to shell out a bit more. This way, the students will also be able to get an internet connection for their other needs too.

Professor Sachidanand Sinha, Dean, Student Welfare Department, JNU said, “The facility has been started and the data cards are being distributed to the students.”

Revealing various other benefits of the online library, he said, “Now JNU would not have to purchase many expensive copies of a single book.”
