School Libraries Continue to Develop to Keep Up with the Era

Medan Merdeka Selatan, Jakarta - Libraries and schools are two elements that cannot be separated. As the era progresses, both must follow the changes caused by digital technology. This was conveyed by National Library Senior Librarian, Nelwaty and Fathmi, at "Inspirational Talk with Perpusnas Senior Librarian", Friday (13/9).

Based on her six year-experience of school library competition jury, Fathmi saw currently library has changed drastically compared to previous times. "The current school library is no longer as it used to be, which is considered ugly, and outdated. But now library is great. The books have followed the development of times," said Fathmi.

She added library in the millennial era no longer only presents collection in printed form. However, it must transform into a digital world with excellent service. With information and communication technology (ICT), library is able to provide information for students and teachers for 24 hours. That way, libraries and schools can produce excellent human resources that follow technology development.

Meanwhile, according to Nelwaty, reading activities must start from family. "If we don't start then who will. That's why we should improve school library," she explained.

Nelwaty assessed library has already experienced a lot of progress and does not only serve as a book storage. Today, library has become place for gathering and educational activities such as computer training. Such libraries in Jetis region have already experienced social inclusion-based transformation. At this library, batik activities for PKK members are held twice a week.

As for school library accreditation, the purpose of which is to find out and improve the quality of school library, is carried out by registering Library Principal Number (NPP) on Perpusnas online.
