online library|Kendriya VidyalayaMADURAI: Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV), Narimedu has become the first school in Madurai to operate a full-fledged online library, catering to the needs of thousands of students. Over the last one year, the number of visitors to the site (https://kv1madurailibrary.wordpress.com) has grown at a rapid pace to about 1.3 lakh. Most of the visitors accessed resource materials, e-books, reference material and other syllabi with the help of this library.

According to K Ramasamy, the school librarian, visitors to the site can access 17,487 books, 74 magazines and four leading English dailies available. The library was computerised in June 2010 with help of the ‘auto lib software system’. He also said that students stand to gain a lot from this library, as it can be accessed anytime, unlike a regular library, which shuts down after school hours.

“We have categories of information including creative corner. About 15 students from our school contribute articles on science, personality development and other areas of interest on a weekly basis. We have collected e-books on English poems, yoga, health, science and autobiographies of historians and have published it online. We also have a separate section called the High Order Thinking Skills (HOTS), especially targeted at those students studying 10th and 12th in CBSE syllabus.” Ramasamy said.

The online library has also made work easy for teachers of CBSE syllabus, who are able to get continuous and comprehensive evaluation methods for their students.

T S Sreenivasan, an English teacher said, “We download continuous and comprehensive evaluation methods from the online library and teach the students. The new announcements regarding the CBSE system are fed into the library. Hence, other CBSE school teachers are also benefited by this. In fact, parents of the students also visit the online library frequently and teach their children.”

R Arthi, a11th standard student of KV said, “It’s superb. We can easily get IIT, AIEEE and NTSE model question papers, which help us gain admission to these courses. This library also has a readers club, where the teachers and students assre the members. We can also give suggestions to the librarian to upload new books. The student community has benefited by this.”

V P Vishnu Prasad, another student said that as his family does not have a television at home, books are his friends. He frequently reads all the e-books, as well as other books from the library. Prasad said that he has read more than 50 science books through the online library.

C Muthiah, principal of the school said that the younger generation are more interested in reading books online, hence they decided to set up the online library. “We have provided all kind of information in the online library including tourism, law, banking, film production, medicine and others. It will help in increasing the reading habits of the student community,” he said.
