Kathmandu, August 22:Â The ancient and historical books of Nepal including 1400 years old written manuscripts,60,000 hand written books in Keshar Library has been digitally recorded.
The main aim to go digital and record electronically was to make historically and archeologically important books available through modern technology according to Library-in-chargeÂ Â Janaki Karmacharya.
He further adds, ” Readers can use digitalized materials as per their need and convenience. However, all books and documents in the library could not be recorded in digital format due to lack of sufficient budget.”
The Library was funded with 400,000 Nepali Rupees for this process.
The number of visitors and readers are increasing in Keshar library with an average of 100 readers a day. The Ministry of Education runs this library which was established in 1965 B.S.
