The Learning Resource Centre (Library) of Prin. L. N. Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research (WeSchool) has been awarded the ‘Customer Success Award’ for best practice through technology innovation by EBSCO in appreciation of demonstrated efforts to share successful initiatives with the community. EBSCO’s customer success program identifies and felicitates various accomplishments in areas such as technology innovation, teacher collaboration, marketing initiatives, community outreach, and fundraising by its customers.

 

EBSCO Information Services provides research solutions comprising of research databases, e-books and e-journals to support the information and collection development needs of libraries and other institutions and to maximize the search experience for researchers and other end users in the community.

 

To accommodate its nearly two thousand students and faculty members, WeSchool’s LRC has subscribed to many databases including EBSCO’s Business Source and Complete that covers collections from institutions such as Harvard Business School, which have proved to be one of the best resources to assist students and professors with their research as it collates data from across the world in a structured manner thus enhancing the quality of their study.

 

Mr. Giridhar Kunkur, Head of Learning Resource Centre at WeSchool along with the Library team took several initiatives, one of them being the establishment of ‘infoWE’, an interactive library portal which helps access various global databases, journals and eBooks. This was followed by the development and circulation of a monthly bulletin ‘infoCapsule’, across several verticals to keep the students and faculty apprised of the wealth of relevant global content that adds value to the classroom teaching-learning.

 

Each bulletin focuses on a specific topic and contains links to relevant articles, news and videos that are in sync with the ongoing syllabus in the classroom. “The implementation of several such initiatives has not only led to a substantial increase in the number of students accessing these databases but also improved their understanding about their field of interest, its application and assimilation,” mentions WeSchool.

WeSchool initiated and hosted Library Strategic Directions: Meeting the needs of 21st Century Scholar’, a workshop jointly organized by University of Mumbai and Harvard Business School. The workshop was conducted by Melissa Shaffer, Director, Baker Library 3.0 Strategy and Infrastructure, HBS who spearheaded the strategic planning and infrastructure development to position Baker as a leading 21st century Knowledge & Learning Resource Center, outlined the need to design the strategy to reach out and create an action plan to make the library’s role more meaningful to bring excellence to the institutions.

 

Commenting on the recent honor bestowed by EBSCO, Prof. Dr. Uday Salunkhe, Group Director, WeSchool said, “Our aim is to create an information repository thus giving our students access to all type of information anytime and anywhere which will help them in knowledge enhancement by getting exposure to worldwide database. We are constantly striving to offer the best facilities to our students with our main focus being on research and innovation. We are elated that EBSCO has chosen us for this honour and we look forward to our continuous association with them to turn WeSchool’s LRC into a global hub of knowledge”.
