University of Ruhuna Opens the Legal Deposit Collection
28/10/14 : 3:30 PM
The legal Deposit Collection of University of Ruhuna Library was officially opened by the Senior Professor Gamini Senanayake (Vice-Chancellor, University of Ruhuna) and Dr. A.M.N. Alagiyawanna (Deputy Vice-Chancellor, University of Ruhuna) on 28th October 2014 at the Main Library, University of Ruhuna, Matara.

The University of Ruhuna has become fortunate to join the group of institutions in Sri Lanka that have been maintaining legal deposit collections since 2013. What is special about the Ruhuna University Legal Deposit Collection, that comprises copies of 160,000 publications made in Sri Lanka since 1990, is that it maintains an Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) and provides the relevant academic facilities to the readers. While growing annually, within a year it receives a bulk of 5,000 publications. The university administration is currently planning to construct a separate building to house the collection comfortably so that it can be maintained in such a way that scholars from all parts of the island will benefit from it.
