For the smooth running of E-Library its necessary for all the volunteers to have abundant knowledge about eLibrary. We can be an efficient teacher only after we will be a smart learner. Volunteers who will be on field to establish, monitor and maintain the E-Library will be needing this training. So this training was organised by Kathmandu University Open Source Community (KUOSC) an autonomous wing of Kathmandu University Computer Club(KUCC) at Kathmandu University to train the new volunteers for contributing their valuable time in E-Library.
Help Nepal Network and Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kathmandu University has signed Memorandum of Understanding on 23 March, 2014. Both of these bodies will work together to uplift the education of country through the medium of E-Library.
