Read Full Story Electronic images can be poor substitutes for images in print—one reason why art and architecture scholars continue to rely heavily on print publications despite a shift to digital.Vanessa Kam, acting head of music, art, and architecture at the University of British Columbia Library, joined a Harvard Library Strategic Conversation to share her findings from a study of the balance between print and digital in art and architecture collections.“Given the state of art and architecture collecting today,” Kam asked, with print retaining its importance and electronic collections growing, “how might we go about forming a vision that will serve us and our users well into the future?”Kam interviewed 14 librarians in the discipline at leading institutions, including Mary Clare Altenhofen, Amanda Bowen, and Ann Whiteside at Harvard, as well as five publishers. She identified five main challenges facing art and architecture librarians interested in championing print:Staffing as staff hours shift from the acquisition/processing of electronic collectionsShifts in budget priorities from print acquisitions to digitalPressure from administrators to focus on e-contentPolicies prohibiting collecting both print and digital copies of the same titlesSpace planning and real estate costs“The future of collections in our libraries is political for many of us,” Kam said. For example, the total cost of keeping a book on the shelf at a university in Vancouver is over $3 per year, per volume, which could decrease interest in keeping low-circulation volumes in prime library locations.

Kolkata: The Election Commission (EC) has given the nod to the state government to continue with its social scheme “Rupashree”.Chief Secretary Malay De has recently sought clarifications from the EC regarding the continuation of some of its schemes with the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) in place after the announcement of the Lok Sabha polls. The Commission, a few days back, had granted permission to the state government to continue its “Somobyathi” scheme. Under the “Rupashree” scheme that was launched in April 2018, one-time financial assistance of Rs 25,000 is given to the economically-stressed families at the time of their daughters’ marriages. In “Somobyathi”, a one-time ex-gratia grant of Rs 2,000 is given to the bereaved family members of a deceased who are in extreme financial need. It may be mentioned that a number of people had approached the state government informing about their difficulty as they were not getting benefits from certain schemes like “Rupashree”, “Somobyathi” and the like. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had directed De to take up the matter with the EC as she felt that the MCC should not be a hindrance in running schemes of public interest that have been announced much earlier and are ongoing. She also expressed her concern over the sufferings of people with the stalling of such schemes. “Marriages are settled much earlier and the rituals are performed as per the convenience of the family members. Similarly, an unfortunate death of a person may occur anytime. The Model Code of Conduct should not be a barrier in providing benefits under these schemes,” Banerjee had reasoned. A senior official of the state government informed that the government has also urged the Election Commission seeking an extension of procurement of potatoes from farmers by a week. The dates for the purchase of potatoes from farmers was scheduled from March 1 to 17. However, with heavy rains affecting the potato cultivation, the state had sought extension till March 24. “The EC is yet to respond to this plea,” the official said.
New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia’s first woman Vice-Chancellor Najma Akhtar has urged varsity staff to ensure that they pass no comments on students’ clothing, complexion, race or religion. Addressing the members of the teaching and the non-teaching fraternity Monday, Professor Akhtar underlined the need for updating the existing courses, overhauling outdated ones and opening new courses in sync with contemporary demands. “Growth and development of an institution has two dimensions consolidation and expansion. We must try to consolidate what we already have, update and tone up programmes that have been running and overhaul those that are outdated and lagging behind,” she said. Akhtar said JMI is a gender-sensitive institution and right from its inception, it has embraced the idea of co-education and healthy mixing and growth of both genders. “Let us do nothing or make no such utterances that can be even remotely be interpreted as disrespectful or derogatory to women,” she cautioned. Staff members should not make any comments on a student’s clothing, complexion, race, place of origin or religion, Akhtar said. “Women empowerment will be a special focus of the current administration,” the vice-chancellor said, adding, “let us all cultivate common virtues of humanity and cosmopolitanism.”
