E resource gateaway Naming Contest
Today, e resource or online resources play important roles as referral source of scholarly written information.
It is much more so in assisting students and researchers when completing their assignments. UniKl library has 18 different databases which carry around 60,000 e books and 2000 e journals as well as conference papers, proceedings, dictionaries, standards etc.Searching for information can be a hassle as they need more time to get in and out of each database. With the gateway, searching for information will be simpler and efficient as the user will only need to type his/her keyword in one search box. The gateway will find / crawl all the 18 databases to find the relevant information. Furthermore, the library hopes the gateway will improve the usage pattern .
