Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
I am very pleased to bring the Islamic Foundation Certral Library under the automation Scheme.Modern age is the age of Internet communication. Today’s busy people want to collect their necessary information by sitting at home. To cater to their needs, it was decided to computerise the Islamic Foundation Library under the running development programme and this is done. As a result , the readers and the researchers will get the opportunity of collecting day to day information about the world at large.
In the modern World, the role library is very important in socio- economic development as thousands of books are being published every moment over the world and the library is the most appropriate place for preserving these books. The library, in other, words is the store of knowledge. Actually comupterising the activitesof the Libray i.e automation is the easist way of disseminating this knowledge among the seekers of knowledge.Not only computerisation of the library, steps have been taken to construct a new building to the east side of the Baitul Mukarram Mosgue to improve library services and extend facilitics to the readers and researchers. Because in the present library building, availability of space is quite insufficient.
At present, there are one lac books in the libarary on eight languages such as Bengali, English, Arabic, Persian, Urdu, French, German and Burmese. Besides, there is also Brail Quran for the blind in this library. Almost all the commentaries of the Quran, writtrn in early and present times and the famous six authentic Hadith books and their notes and explanations are available in this library.In addition to the above mentioned books on Quran, Hadith and Commentaries, there are many books on history, geography, economics, philosophy, sociology, law, theology and Islamic literature.
I wish success of the automation programme of the Islamic Foundation Central Library.
