Ms Meher Yasmeen Khan this is the excellent opportunity for the trade, students, faculty to visit the book fair. Digitalisation made possible the digitalisation of library. Books can be borrowed by subscribing to the respective library, and the book will come immediately digitally. It is very important for our student should borrow library worldwide, and the University should be the guarantor. Also NED library should provide the books to the students worldwide. If we are to come out of poverty, ignorance, and leadership in R&D.
