Message from the Deputy Librarian

                         Welcome to the Prime University Library.
                      I feel honoured to be the Deputy Librarian of this university. Since my joining, I have marked that the Prime University authority is very much careful about the development and sustainability of this important organ of the University. It is one of the richest among the libraries of private universities of the country.
                      Apart from the books of different subjects, there are many books of different arena such as Autobiography of leading personalities of the world, books on liberation war of Bangladesh, Novels, International Journal and Magazine etc. The collection of the books of the library is above 40000 and the books are shelved in a big premises situated at the first floor of the university permanent campus.
                      The Library's website is the gateway to our e-resources and digital services. The library website aims at providing a brief introduction to the facilities and services provided by the library and other basic information pertaining to the library.
                      I hope the users of the library will be obviously benefitted if they take time to explore and the opportunity to discover the range of resources and services rendering by the library.

An electronic library (colloquially referred to as a digital library) is a focused collection of digital objects that can include text, visual material, audio material, video material, stored as electronic media formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media), along with means for organizing, storing, and retrieving the files and media contained in the library collection. Digital libraries can vary immensely in size and scope, and can be maintained by individuals, organizations, or affiliated with established physical library buildings or institutions, or with academic institutions.The electronic content may be stored locally, or accessed remotely via computer networks. An electronic library is a type of information retrieval system.

In the context of the DELOS, a Network of Excellence on Digital Libraries, and, a Coordination Action on Digital Library Interoperability, Best Practices and Modelling Foundations, Digital Library researchers and practitioners and software developer produced a Digital Library Reference Model which defines a digital library as: "A potentially virtual organisation, that comprehensively collects, manages and preserves for the long depth of time rich digital content, and offers to its targeted user communities specialised functionality on that content, of defined quality and according to comprehensive codified policies."

The CD ROMs containing contents of different books, matters relating to Environments, Historical Incidences, Culture, Culinary Arts etc.

A distinction is often made between content that was created in a digital format, known as born-digital, and information that has been converted from a physical medium, e.g. paper, by digitizing. It should also be noted that not all electronic content is in digital data format. The term hybrid library is sometimes used for libraries that have both physical collections and electronic collections. For example, American Memory is a digital library within the Library of Congress.

Some important digital libraries also serve as long term archives, such as arXiv and the Internet Archive. Others, such as the Digital Public Library of America, seek to make digital information widely accessible through public libraries.

Academic repositories:
Many academic libraries are actively involved in building institutional repositories of the institution's books, papers, theses, and other works which can be digitized or were 'born digital'. Many of these repositories are made available to the general public with few restrictions, in accordance with the goals of open access, in contrast to the publication of research in commercial journals, where the publishers often limit access rights. Institutional, truly free, and corporate repositories are sometimes referred to as digital libraries.

Digital archives:
Physical archives differ from physical libraries in several ways. Traditionally, archives are defined as:

  • Containing primary sources of information (typically letters and papers directly produced by an individual or organization) rather than the secondary sources found in a library (books, periodicals, etc.).
  • Having their contents organized in groups rather than individual items.
  • Having unique contents.
The technology used to create digital libraries is even more revolutionary for archives since it breaks down the second and third of these general rules. In other words, "digital archives" or "online archives" will still generally contain primary sources, but they are likely to be described individually rather than (or in addition to) in groups or collections. Further, because they are digital their contents are easily reproducible and may indeed have been reproduced from elsewhere. The Oxford Text Archive is generally considered to be the oldest digital archive of academic physical primary source materials.
