FCC’s librarians conducted a six-day Library Orientation Program for newly enrolled Intermediate students, from 10 to 17 September 2013. 1500 intermediate students benefited from this program in 32 orientation sessions held by FCC Library staff.
This Library Orientation Program is an annual activity which helps to introduce the students to the facilities, services, procedures and rules and regulations of the Intermediate library. The orientation sessions focus on the following points:
- How to search online library catalogue
- Familiarizing new students with the issue/return/renew procedures including the I-Portal login procedure
- Encouraging students to develop their reading habits
The students took keen interest in the orientation program and asked meaningful questions, to gain maximum benefit from the sessions.
It is a commendable activity done by FCC Librarians, to cover 5 to 6 class sessions everyday and a remarkable collaboration by college teachers who ensured the availability of their classes according to the schedule.
