Library Update September 2009

Library Updates

Greetings from the VC library!

It is nearly 4 months since the Library was opened to the public and just the time for our 1st Newsletter.

First the response to our opening – though not overwhelming, but very encouraging.  In terms of membership, we are averaging about 15 new members a month. Though the word ‘library’ invokes the stereotyped image of a place to borrow books, the VC Library is more than that. It is a place for the discussion and exchange of ideas, a place to make new contacts, enhance and add to personal skills and perceptions.  There are talks and lectures by professionals in their field, seminars, workshops and video / audio clip sessions.

We are constantly adding to our stock and will shortly be introducing new sections and services for the convenience of members.

Last month I had announced the opening of our ‘Junior Section’, dedicated to children in the age group 10 – 16 yrs.  Of course the focus still is science and technology and business, in a language easy for children to understand.

We have also started a collection of books in Marathi (again, related to sci & tech, business). At the moment, the books are few, but we are adding to it. The problem is in sourcing the type of books relevant to our focus.  Let me here invite our members to send in suggestions and titles of books in Marathi.

Before closing this newsletter, I list below the plans and launches we propose to implement soon.

Also our plan to make our library an interactive hub and a happening place, which should not be too difficult, with your support and encouragement !!

  • A section on incubation
  • Catalogs and Buyer’s Guide
  • Encyclopedia s / Handbooks
  • A collection of audio / video clips
  • Databases
  • A premium collection of subscription databases.
