Nowadays the dynamics of a library have changed with the addition of a relational aspect to all its processes. The first change to happen to the academic library was a change in the way the collections were curated and developed as an electronic resource, also known as an e-journal, e-book, and online databases in varied digital formats. A demonstration of the database was presented by Balani Infotech Pvt. Lt., Ernakulam at the CVV library at the Warriam Road facility Prajna Pratishthanam on Friday, 11 August 2023 at 10.30 a.m. The Dean of Research, Dr. Girish Kumar, heads and faculty of various schools attended the session.
