Bengal Govt to digitise Assembly records

Bengal Govt to digitise Assembly records

Kolkata, Dec 4 (UNI) Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has recently

announced that the State Government has decided to digitise the

books and records that are there in the library located inside the

Assembly building.

The new e-library will be located at the Platinum Jubilee Memorial

Building inside the Assembly premises, during whose foundation-stone

laying she made the announcement.

The building will also house a museum, an auditorium and a conference

hall.

There are there are more than two lakh books in the existing library, for

whose preservation digitisation is essential. The State Education

Department will extend support in this connection.

Further, after digitisation, the electronic archive would be opened to the

public.

Researchers from all over the world visit the library in the Assembly to

study various books and documents.

Besides digitisation, the Chief Minister announced several other

measures. One of this is to make available documents and books from

the Assembly library to those who order for them in a much shorter time.

For this purpose, staff strength is likely to be increased.

She also said the documents in Bengali would be translated into

English, for which the help of the British Council and Cambridge

University might be sought.

Again, tie-ups with Bangladesh can be done as part of an academic

exchange since the histories of Bengal and Bangladesh are inextricably

linked.
