Nearing the digital reach for more students
August 6, 2015 | Bhaktapur
A free and open source digital library will now be accessed by thousands of students of Sainik Awashiya Maha Bidhyalaya, located in Sallaghari, Bhaktapur.
Located just few kilometers away from Kathmandu, the school consist of students from grades six to twelve. It was encouraging to know that many of these students were already familiar with the digital library and were equally excited to avail it easily without the need to have Internet connectivity.
The program was conducted on August 6, 2015, where our team comprising of Mr. Ganesh Ghimire and Mr. Bikram Dhoju installed the E-Pustakalaya servers in the school library where they had twenty desktops available in the computer lab. The enthusiasm of the school was clearly seen from the preparations carried in terms of electricity supply for smooth functioning of the program. They had inverter as a back up and also connected servers to UPS for uninterrupted service.
The installation of the digital library was followed by the orientation to the teachers including principal, vice-principal, teachers, librarians and students of the school.
We hope this program helps students to get access to vast array of educational material, which will benefit students and teachers in their everyday teaching-learning process.
