Technology has become an inseparable part of our lives and thus, e-library at Ramagya combines technology and information resources to allow access for breaking down the physical barriers between resources. The e-library allows not only teachers and students to take advantage of wider ranges of materials but also communicate with people outside the formal learning environment. This allows the integration of different types of learning. E-library is accessible from any corner of the world and allows possibilities for vicarious field trips, virtual guest speakers, and access to rare and unique materials in classrooms and at home. Thus the learning horizon of the students becomes broader, faster, better by offering greater opportunity for users to deposit information as well as use information aptly.
Benefits of E-Library
- A heightened amount of choice
Digital libraries give access to multiple contents with a potentially infinite number of resources and selections at hand. The main limit for traditional libraries is represented by physical space: books consume a lot of it and people often have to walk round in search of a particular material. Thanks to Internet and cloud storage, digital libraries overcome this limitation, expanding students’ horizons in learning. They can access an enormous amount of knowledge and share contents with others, facilitating the expansion of education.
- Building a heritage for the next generation
Online libraries help the society since they act as a reservoir for the storage of important data, information and findings. For a very long time, the physical records of studies and researches had to live with a critical issue: they were destroyed or lost. But today, thanks to digital libraries, the online copies of studies and researches can be protected and collected to create a virtual heritage of information for the coming generations.
- Instant access to educational content
Why do we do it?
As long as an Internet connection is available, digital libraries are accessible anywhere and at any moment using a simple technological device, such as a PC, a tablet or even a smartphone. This means students can consult online books, images, videos, and all the other educational contents without having to wait and go to the nearest physical library. They can do it in a formal environment, for example at school, or they can relax at their homes getting instant access to the information they need.
