E-library

Electronic library is a collection of electronic resources and associated technical
capabilities for creating, searching and using information. In this sense they are an extension and
expansion of the systems of storage and retrieval of information, dealing with digital data of any
type (text, images, sounds; statistical or dynamic images), and existing in distributed networks.
Electronic library is a database containing information objects in various formats, providing
direct access to the users community and with the following additional features: a universal tool
of access (e.g., catalog) makes it possible to search and retrieve information across the whole
database; organized technical procedures by which you can fill up the database according to the
policy of formation of funds.
Modern information technologies allowed to start a large-scale transfer of accumulated
information into electronic form and the creation of new types of information resources, which
include electronic libraries. Organization of access to information sources in electronic form
became one of the most important tasks of information service of science and education.
Availability of electronic library in higher educational institution is today a necessary
prerequisite of successful student training.
In this regard, we can formulate the main objectives of the electronic library of KSMA:
• make information more accessible;
• contribute to the preservation of scientific and cultural heritage;
• improve the efficiency of work and training.
Accordingly, the electronic library must meet certain requirements.
• 1) The basic requirement for the selection of information – acquisition of information fund -
is systemacy, which means
• availability of thematic profile;
• interconnection of the fund;
• certainty of the type of selected documents;
• relevance with scientific, technical, cultural and social level of society (industry, thematic
area, etc.).
The purpose of information fund is to provide the user with all the necessary information on the
specified profile and minimize his need in other sources.
We offer faculty, scientific and research community, graduates, masters, cadets and
students the electronic resource, which will promote the development of knowledge and
science in KSMA.
