The University of Cape Coast in collaboration with the African Intellectual Database for Development And Excellence (AIDDE) has launched a UCC-AIDDE Extended Library And Digitization Project.

The project which was developed by AIDDE is an extension of the existing electronic library of the university to promote effective and efficient teaching and learning.

Giving the opening remarks at the launch which took place yesterday at the School of Medical Science Auditorium of the University of Cape Coast, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Joseph Ghartey Ampiah stated that, the library is an e-book solution for the university as it is to digitize journals, articles, textbooks and other educational materials for easy access by students and staff of the university.

According to him, the platform already has available over 50,000 materials from countries all over the world and the door is made open for uploads and publication of other educational materials from lecturers and students of the university after registration.

“The E-library system we are launching today is not something new. The university itself has an E-library but several people complain about E-library because they claim the things they want to see there is not what is available. Those of us in education when we go there the materials are very limited in the E-library so the need to look for other libraries becomes important” the Vice-Chancellor said.

The AIDDE is to digitize educational resources. Currently, the resource on the platform includes academic textbook publications, journals and others. Materials from that platform come from East Africa, South Africa, the Netherlands, USA, Canada and some other European countries.

On his part, Ing. Anthony Kwame Ardiabah, Head of E-Learning and Knowledge Management DICTS of the University of Cape Coast also added that the platform can be accessed on the university’s website and thus encouraged students and staff to make effective use of the platform since registration is free but the benefits enormous.
