Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University plans e-library

The Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University will shortly commission an e-library that will house medical literature in electronic format instead of books.

The project is being undertaken on the university’s Guindy campus under a Rs. 25-crore funding from the Planning Commission, according to Vice-Chancellor K. Meer Mustafa Hussain.

Addressing a CME on ‘Emerging trends in medicine’ organised at the Madras Medical College on Tuesday, he said the e-library would be useful to students and faculty, besides benefiting the 242 affiliate institutions.

Urging students to update knowledge, Mr. Mustafa reminded them that a norm proposed from the next academic year would make it mandatory for postgraduate students to participate in a minimum of two CMEs for their examination hall-tickets to be issued.

The Vice-Chancellor urged medical students and teachers to keep themselves abreast of developments and pursue research in areas of relevance. The university, he said, was keen on promoting research at all levels.
