PIMS e-library lacks computers

ISLAMABAD, Sep 7: Doctors and postgraduate students serving at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) cannot fully benefit from the e-journals facility due to shortage of computers at the main electronic library.

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) had provided access to around 20,000 e–journals related to the medical profession.

E-library Chief Mushahid Hussain said the commission had provided them with static Internet Protocol (IP) of eight databases to access e-journals. He said the library had four computers and needs four more to facilitate students. There are no proper technicians to run the e-library, he added. He said the Ripha University had given access to 20,000 e-journals through the commission.

Mushahid said the hospital intended to set up two more libraries - one at the cardiac centre and the other at burns centre. He said Executive Director Dr Fazle Hadi had promised to provide a plot for the new library at the hospital. He said the new library would be a 24-hour facility.

The official said the hospital had planned to establish a digital library for which material was being collected. He said the hospital had also planned to link its libraries with the CPSP and the National Library and Resource Centre (NL&RC), which had a collection of 15,000 books on all areas of special education.

He said the hospital's libraries had 30,000 books, 61 foreign and 31 local journals on all specialties. He said outsiders were not allowed to enter the hospital's libraries because of limited seating capacity. He said a separate library for outdoor doctors was also being considered. Daily times
