ZODML to establish e-libraries in Anambra schools

A non-governmental organisation, Zaccheus Onumba Dibiaezue Memorial Libraries (ZODML) has disclosed its plans to establish online libraries in tertiary institutions in Anambra state.

Chief Executive Officer of ZODML, Mrs Ego Mgbagwu, who disclosed this to reporters on Tuesday in Awka, said the online libraries would aid real time teaching, learning and research activities in the institutions.

She said the group had already started discussing with the managements of the institutions on the modalities.

She said, “Some institutions in South Africa and other developed countries are responding to the urgent need by resorting to online teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Yet, we realised that during the lockdown, students and lecturers could not go to school in this part of the world. Recognising the importance of online library to higher education, we decided to invest in that direction.”

Mgbagwu further revealed that the organization had also set up and equipped over 24 libraries in primary and secondary schools as well as correctional centres in the state.
