The Ewha Centennial Library has rearranged its first floor main hall by installing four 42-inch wide touch screens. On Feb. 8, the old bindings of newspapers were replaced with these up-to-date screens which provide 13 different newspapers.
T-Paper application, which was introduced in June 2010, was inputted into suitable device to improve the usage in places such as National Digital Library of Korea and other university libraries.
“Until the T-Paper was set, the Ewha Centennial Library provided only four different newspapers in the hall area. With the new device it became possible to present much more information to the students,” said Ko You-sun, who is in charge of electronic journals in the Ewha Centennial Library. “We hoped that students will be able to get the most information they need.”
T-paper provides 13 newspapers in pairs. One from the pair provides Chosun Ilbo, Kyunghyang Shinmun, Hankyoreh, Kukmin Ilbo, Seoul Economy, Seoul Shinmun, and Financial News. The one on the other side provides Joong-ang Ilbo, Dong-A Ilbo, Hankook Ilbo, Herald Economy, Korea Herald, and Sport Hankook.
Students can browse all the articles within three months. The search system is especially convenient for those who wish to do their research by key words.
“As I visit the Ewha Centennial Library to read newspapers, it is great to hear about T-Paper. Also, students who are looking for information will be able to do their job in much ease,” said Lee Da-hyeon (Economics, 2).
The bound newspapers are continuously provided on the second floor of the Ewha Centennial Library.
