Technical preview of Digital Library.

KATHMANDU, Friday, 14 September, 2018 — Imagine what you want and find on your Pam. It seems a dream, but such dreams are transferring into reality. It is a new approach and an innovative idea that I and my team has tried to relate imagination into reality in UN digital library. Just think and speak what you want, UN digital library would prompt available materials in various formats – documents, photos and videos – of information. Concept of voice over search engine has been implemented into the digital library, especially for those people who are very special and differently able to perform any acts of their life. With essence of global agenda 2030 – sustainable development – we tried to accommodate all leaving no one behind. This is still not enough but might be the first kind in digital library in Nepal to try to reach more people through unique campaign of the UN’s knowledge management to preserve institutional memories.

What do you do if you have 10?… what? Confused? Counter questions put you into knowledge stage. Exactly, you are asking yourself what 10. Ten (10) can be either 10 books or 10 rupees or any letter or any image about event. Data are discrete about events including numbers, text or any image representing single reality without any context. Data always represented disconnected and distinct which are absolute single reality without any double meaning to anyone like “10” means not “11”. It is “10” in quantity anywhere and anytime (environment).
