KALABURAGI: Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala on Friday said there is a need to introduce ‘uniform library system’ across the country to help people get maximum benefit.

He was speaking after inaugurating a two-day international conference on ‘Emerging technologies and future of libraries- issues and challenges’ organised by the Karnataka State SC/ST Library Professionals Association, Institute of Dr B R Ambedkar Studies and Research, Gulbarga University, and RAK Medical and Health Sciences University Ras AI Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, at Ambedkar Bhavan here.

The Governor said libraries are considered temples of knowledge and these modern temples should be well equipped with advanced technology.

“We should not neglect the old method of maintaining libraries, but should not ignore the inventions in developing libraries. We should take up the challenge and educate our youth in a better way. Today intelligence is increasing and it is our duty to see that this intelligence is utilised for prosperity,” Vala said.

The Governor further advised the authorities to ensure that books written by eminent scholars, including saints Shankaracharya, Madhwacharya, Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi are available in all libraries.
