Recently,we were in the huge building of the largest library of the country, working on a story about its treasures.
We could not help thinking about how it would be great to give access to all this magnificence to the readers from all the regions. It turned out, that National Library named after Alisher Navoi will take all the regional information-library centers under its wing. So, the main library of the country will get an extensive network of branches.
At the same time, all branches will be obliged to cooperate closely with the information- resource centers, operating as part of institutions of the Ministry of National Education, Ministry of Higher and Secondary Special Education, Ministry of Culture and Sports. The Fund for development of information and library facilities at the National Library of Uzbekistan will allocate more than 3.5 billion soums on strengthening the technical base of the new branches.
Each information- library center will be transformed into a modern cognitive center of leisure for youth.Modernization of material and technical base of information and library resource centers are planned for 2016-2019 years. They will be equipped with modern multimedia equipment, special software will be installed.
In parallel, digital copies of ancient manuscripts of classics of world and Uzbek literature will be created. For further preservation of originals, copies will be published in various media - print, audiovisual and electronic.
