Fajar said that the visit was conducted in order to increase expand the knowledge on library and to share experiences.
"The system is indeed different here, in a university library, than the one we had in the office. We will learn the advantages of university library to improve our work back in the office," said Meilani. One of the thing that Meilani learned is about Digilib management; its system and its safety. Since 2007, ITB has established a digital library with more than 40.000 contents. "We visited ITB's library because we consider this library as a good example," Meilani added.
