Enugu College of Education Goes Digital
An Information and Communication Technology (ICT) University in the United States (US) has donated a digital library to the Federal College of Education (FCE), Eha-Amufu in Enugu State.
Prof Benjamin Mbah, the provost of the college sought the assistance of the University through partnership for the College’s Staff and students to boost their research and learning.
The e-library which has over 1.2million educational materials in different fields is well stocked with relevant journals of international standards.
In his keynote address Prof. W.A. Mbarika, the varsity’s Board of Trustees President and also the founding Editor-in-Chief of African Journal of Information System said “The world is changing and moving faster.
Even if our universities, colleges, and other tertiary institutions refuse to move forward, the world will continue to move ahead and ICT is a major driver.
Some Institutions would prefer to build a huge library with many books that could easily be collapsed into a small computer. These days, e-library is the easiest way to acquire knowledge and every institution should embrace it.”
He advised the staff and students to make the e-library their companion to meet up with the global standard in research, teaching, and learning.
