IIM Bodhgaya Library Facilitates Online Learning with all E-resources
Bodhgaya: IIM Bodh Gaya has started their new session online. To assure that new batch doesn’t lag due to the ongoing Panademic situation the Institute has arranged for online resources to be made available to the new batch. The students can access all e-resources of the library from their home through a remote access option to facilitate their learning. The library has also subscribed various databases such as Capitaline Database, ABI/Inform Complete, CMIE-Prowess IQ, EPWRF India Time Series, EIKON Database, and Turnitin Feedback Studio for allowing the students to have access to Industry data. Also, the library has provided access to many e-Journals like Emerald Insights, JSTOR, Elsevier Science Direct, Taylor & Francis, ProQuest e-book Central Academic Complete to help the students keep up with the developments going on in the business world.
IIM Bodhgaya’s Library, known as -the Learning Resource Centre (LRC), occupies a unique place in academic and research activities of the Institute. Due to the current situation, its role has become even more crucial as the LRC is bridging the gap between students and the resources. The LRC is fully automated and well equipped with a mixed collection of books, journals, magazines, e-Journals, e-Books and databases from globally known publishers in both print and electronic format. LRC provides students access to over 150000 e-Books, 15,000+ e-Journals and 7000+ e-magazines and e-newspapers.
For familiarising the students with the online platform few preparatory sessions were conducted on 29th July 2020 and 31st July 2020 to facilitate the usage of different e-resources for the new batch of students. On 29th July 2020, the sessions were conducted on Walkthrough Magzter Digital Newsstand: An Overview by Mr Shashank Thapliya. Later, Mr Syed Hasan Jafar took a session on How to Use CMIE Prowess IQ Database. There was a presentation on How to Maximize the Benefits of ProQuest Resources (eBooks & e-Journals) for Academic Work by Mr Sanjay Rajan.
The sessions on Refinitive EIKON Database were conducted by Mr Rohit S. Pujari and Ms Reshmi Bhattacherya on 31st July 2020. The library sessions ended with the presentation by Dr P. M. Gupta, librarian of IIM Bodhgaya on Online Learning through a Single Window: Access to Digital Resources Anytime, from Anywhere.
Ongoing pandemic has brought with it several challenges and IIM Bodh Gaya is actively trying to remove any hindrance in the learning process and assuring smooth learning experience for its incoming batch.
