Students of Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU) will have access to electronic versions of textbooks. On the initiative of the Rector of TSU, Academician Jaba Samushia, representatives of the Central Library of TSU and the National Science Library will work on the full digitization of the textbooks included in the curricula.
On this occasion, Jaba Samushia met with the representatives of the libraries to discuss the challenges that may accompany the process of textbook digitization.
According to the Rector, a space will be created on the TSU library website where students will be able to find digital versions of books. “The portal will be convenient for young people, with easy navigation, where textbooks, syllabi and articles will be placed according to subjects,” he noted.
To respect copyright, e-textbooks will be uploaded to a closed space that only TSU students will have access to.
