E-LIBRARIES under the ICT division of the Education Department will become a reality in 2014, Director-General of the Office of Library Archives (OLA) and National Literacy Awareness Secretariat (NLAS), Jacob Hevelawa said.
Hevelawa used his Christmas address to announce that the OLA and NLAS E-Library concept would begin to be realised early next year with a school in East Sepik that had purchased 20 computers for their school library.
“The computers are now with the ICT division of the department for the school and teachers resource materials to be installed before they are released to the school.
“Kusambuk Primary School is now making history, in so far as ICT application through Education Department is concerned. Other schools have ICT equipment and software introduced but not through the department’s ICT Division.”
Education Minister James Marape, Vice-Minister Gisuwat Siniwin, and secretary Dr Michael Tapo were all in Port Moresby to hear Hevelawa.
Hevelawa thanked the two minsters and the Education Department for the K1 million funding towards the National Book Week and Literacy Week. K500,000 of the funds was allocated during the National Book Week in Northern and the other K500,000 during the National Literacy Week in the Mul-Baiyer electorate in Western Highlands.
