Prof Dr Mujeeb Sahrai, Vice Chancellor of Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) visited different sections of the SMIU campus including the two libraries, Khan Bahadur Hassanally Effendi Library and another library which is being established in the Information Technology (IT) Tower of SMIU.

In the Hassanally Effendi Library, Dr Mujeeb Sahrai observed the collection of books including some old books and ‘Dr Hamida Khuhro Corner.’

It must be mentioned here that Ms Nuha Ansari-Moore, daughter of eminent scholar and historian of Pakistan Dr. Hamida Khuhro had given more than two thousand rare books for the corner set up with the name of her great mother, some three years ago. Ms Ansari had also visited the library some days ago.

During his visit Vice Chancellor Dr Mujeeb Sahrai said SMIU already runs two modern libraries on the campus. Among these, one is Hassanally Effendi Library, which is for the students, faculty and staff members of the university and the other one is set up in the building of SMIU Model School, for its students, teachers and staff members. While, the third library is being established in the IT Tower, especially for the students of the Department of Software Engineering, Department of Computer Science and Department of Artificial Intelligence & Mathematical Sciences of the university.

Dr Mujeeb Sahrai said, in the modern age of information technology, the importance of printed books still prevails and especially the young generation must establish their relationship with books, which are basic and authentic source of knowledge. He said all the three libraries of SMIU will be improved.
