A WORD ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY
The University of Calicut which celebrated its 41st Birthday last year have a new Team
under the able guidance of Prof. (Dr.) M.Abdul Salam, Vice-Chancellor and Prof. K. Raveendranath
the new Pro-Vice-chancellor.
The University is striving hard to improve the quality in the higher education sector and to
achieve 100% graduate level of education to all within a decade. Our Vice-Chancellor has a
dream to make the University known in the academic world. Criticism is quite natural when we
bring changes but once we accept the new ideas it becomes familiar and the critics find new
subjects. With good intentions, he has planned to have e-governance [Digital Document
Filing System] implemented in 2011-12. He hopes, procrastination in disposing files, sending
files to different branches will come to an end in the new system of governance.
It is expected that the files kept unattended at various levels can be monitored at every
higher level and if needed can be pulled and orders given by the higher ups. The Vice-Chancellor
expects the University Community to gladly accept this system of governance. To make himself
available to the faculty always he plans to have video-conferencing facility to all teaching
departments.
The efforts taken by him to solve the burning problems of the student community has
started yielding results. The Single Window System of admission to PG Courses of all teaching
departments and affiliated colleges was widely accepted by the student community and the
software for this was developed by our programmers under the leadership of Sri. V. T. Madhu,
Director, Calicut University Computer Centre. The Campus community feels that if development
is taking place in the present pace definitely by 2015 the University will be able to present
something good before the country.

21. Improvements in the library services
•

ICT CENTRE FOR Visually Challenged - Libraries are considered to be the store houses of knowledge
preserved in the form of books and journals. They provide easy access to information for this user
community, in order to meet their variety of information requirements. But, the visually impaired
people were kept out of these knowledge hubs for a long period. Of course, Braille books were
available, but their contribution constituted not even a minute part of the vast ocean of the published
books. Here is the relevance of the information and communication technology. With the help of the
ICT, several books were converted into e-test, enabling the visually challenged to access them with
the help of the screen readers. Calicut University, which is the front runner in assisting the disabled,
realising the prospects of this technology very well, an Information and Communication Technology
Centre for the Visually Challenged was launched on 27 January 2010 at the CH Mohammed Koya
Library. The aim of the ICT centre for the visually challenged is to provide the facility to use the library
more efficiently to enhance their knowledge and thereby improve in their studies. Further, after their
studies if they want to be employed in the main stream society, which is now increasingly becoming
IT based, computer literacy has to be provided in order to enhance their employability. The ICT Centre
for the visually challenged aims to achieve both these purposes viz., the knowledge expansion and
employability enhancement of the visually challenged. For imparting the computer literacy among
the visually challenged, a basic data entry programme of 42 days duration is being conducted by this
University of Calicut
Centre. The subjects covered are Data Entry, Internet surfing, emailing, CD writing and copying etc.
The operating system used for this purpose is Ubuntu which is an open source OS based on the
Linux platform. Till now 20 students have got benefited from this course in 6 batches. Apart from
this, facility for using the library, is also given to the students. Help is given to the surf the Internet
and to read the journals. Now a days, a system called DAISY (Digital Access Information System)
has been introduced to aid the visually challenged. With the help of this system the e-test displayed
in the monitor can be heard at the same time without an extra screen reader. Such saved books can
be read conveniently. The CHMK Library, in its programme “to make the visually challenged friendly”
got the permission from the authorities to start a DAISY Production unit and it will be started soon.
Not a single university in Kerala has initiated such a novel attempt. In order to get the visually
challenged acquainted to this, a workshop on the DAISY system was conducted on 22nd October
2011 in the Library. About 60 visually challenged persons participated in the workshop. A seminar
was also conducted on 23rd October 2011 on “Assistive Technology and Visually Challenged”. The
purpose of this two day programme is to make the visually challenged acquainted with the prospects
of the IT to make them employable. Four persons from four different fields Mr. R. Rajan, Deputy
Director, Inclusive Education, Kerala, Mr. Sudhir.R. From the corporate field, Dr. Reshmi Pramod
(Ayurvedic Doctor) from the medical field and Mr. C. Habeeb, Associate Professor, Farook College
from the teaching field, shared their experiences of using the screen readers. In order to spread the
use of the ICT among more students, the Section Officer of the ICT centre took a three day class in
the Ubuntu operating system in the Govt. Victoria College, Palakkad, which is an affiliated college of
the University of Calicut. The CHMK Library and the ICT Centre will continue their efforts to make the
library more visually challenged friendly, thereby enabling them to contribute their potential for the
society.
•
Digital Resource Centre - As part of the digitization of library resources the CHMK Library has
completed the digital conversion of 300 Ph.D theses submitted for the award of Doctor of Philosophy
in the University of Calicut. Dspace, an open source software, is used for the digitization purpose.
•
Taking into consideration of the increased demand on part of the students the library has initiated the
work of digitizing the question papers of the various examinations conducted by the University in the
previous years. Digital copies of the question papers can be given to the students on demand and
the whole set of question papers will be uploaded in the library site.
