Shivaji University, Kolhapur is planning to start a braille library for visually impaired students.
University’s Vice-Chancellor N J Pawar on Tuesday said that the members of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) peer team who came calling in September last year had found the university to be doing well in research, they had suggested that it set up a well-equipped braille library for visually impaired students on the campus and those from affiliated colleges.
"We have taken the recommendation quite seriously and are looking at ways to implement it. The library will be available for visually impaired students from SUK's 281 affiliated colleges across Sangli, Satara and Kolhapur district," Pawar said.
Pawar added, "Study resources are changing over time. We need to accept and adapt to the changes. The visually impaired students, too, need to actively participate in the new initiatives."
