Library Website Competition, Participate&Win I-POD Nanos & USB Drive (January 07, 2006)

A research study commissioned by Elsevier revealed that one of the best practices followed by successful libraries to market their resources is through the library website. The library website becomes the starting point for a researcher to find the information that he needs. A well-defined library website leads the user to the desired resource Hence this activity is accorded high priority by library management. Elsevier India would like to work in close coordination with the HEC and with all Institutions in Pakistan accessing ScienceDirect and Scopus to help attain the maximum utilization of all resources in your library.

In this endeavor to optimize utilization of Research resources at our universities, Elsevier has started a compitation for all universities for Digital lIbrary website compitation.
