The Central Library of Delhi University is going to open soon. Necessary guidelines regarding the library are ready and the library administration has also prepared it, just waiting for DU’s order. However, only 175 people will be admitted.
Let it be known that students have been demanding to open the library for a long time. Most Masters final year and researchers are facing trouble due to not opening the library.
Newly appointed librarian at DU Dr. Rajesh Singh said that our preparation is complete. Keeping in mind the social distancing, limited students will be admitted here. Just as all the procedures are done before entering the metro, the same process will also be adopted here. Students’ sanitizers, in addition to checking masks, will have their temperature measured before admission to the library. They will also be given a sanitizer. Only then will the library be given admission.
The library has a seating capacity of 400 students
Dr. Rajesh Singh said that there is a seating arrangement of about 400 students in the Central Library located on the North Campus, but only 175 people will be allowed to sit here. Arrangements are for the researchers to sit on the second floor and the students of the Masters on the first floor. Students coming here will be instructed not to come here if they have symptoms related to covid-19.
Library will open in a phased manner
DU has several libraries including North and South Campus. All these libraries will be opened in a phased manner. Chief Librarian, Dr. Rajesh Singh said that the most problem is facing researchers and final year students. Therefore, the Central Library will be opened for them first and then the rest will get a chance. The Central Library of North Campus will first be opened for teachers and researchers of the department.
