Gujarat assembly library to be digitised

While the state government is making preparations to celebrate Gujarat's golden jubilee, the library of the Gujarat state assembly is also moving towards its new avatar.

The library will be digitised in the current financial year. On the occasion of World Book and Copyright Day, Ashok Bhatt, speaker of the assembly, shared some details of the library."We are planning to digitise the library in the golden jubilee year of Gujarat. The library is unique, as unlike other state assemblies' libraries, we allow researchers and journalists to use the place for research purposes.

"It is a reference library for members of the legislative assembly, officers etc. It is quite different from other general libraries in the state. It has more documentary books, which include all the discussions since the inception of the Gujarat Assembly.
