All the Head of the Department
Sub: Review of the procurement of library resource.
I am happy to inform you that in last four working days, we have already issued more than 8000 books to more than 14000 students. During the process of issuance of books, it was observed that there are both positive & negative points in the book collection of different deptts. There is a gap between the demand of the students & book collection of the Deptt. This need to be addressed immediately.
Further, the library has received several indents from your department but due to space constraints it is not possible to process all the indents. Therefore, you are requested to convene a departmental faculty meeting where librarian will present the current status of the library resources of your department. Then the department can review the existing resources and can recommend the new resources based on the discussion of the meeting.
Further, kindly note that we have already issued temporary ID cards to more than 80% newly admitted students. The books have also been issued to them. We are in a process of issuing the permanent ID cards to them.
You are requested to arrange a Library Orientation programme for the newly admitted MTech, MSc, MBA & PhD Scholars of your Deptt in your Deptt. Lab where Librarian can take an Information Literacy Session for them.
Looking forward for your kind co-operation in this regards.
