Magelang Military Academy Proposes Assistance in Library Procurement
Medan Merdeka Selatan, Jakarta - Director of National Library Muhammad Syarif Bando received the visit of Head of Magelang Military Academy History Centre, Lieutenant Colonel Hendra Purwanasari, Monday (31/8). Lt. Col. Hendra specifically proposed a request for assistance in procuring shelves and collections at Magelang Military Academy library.
Responding to the request, Director of National Library of Indonesia guaranteed the assistance requested by military academy and it would be accommodated in 2021 considering this year National Library’s budget was cut by 40% for the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"We will allocate books, shelves, and a number of computer units for Magelang Military Academy library next year," said Director of National Library.
In addition, National Library will also prepare a team to fix the server that was given by National Library several years ago. "It has not yet been used because there are no library staff or soldiers who can operate it," added Lieutenant Colonel Hendra.
