Peshawar Universityâ€™s library hit by staff shortage
Anonymous Patron writes "Daily Times - Lahore,Pakistan
Reports Despite being lavishly funded and well equipped, the Peshawar Universityâ€™s (PU) central library is not serving the needs of students, owing to its poor management. The libraryâ€™s annual salary budget amounts to Rs 6 million and it also receives an annual Rs 200,000 for necessary library developmental and repair works. It has been provided with books and journals worth Rs 5 million this year alone, the PU treasurer told Daily Times.
The central library has purchased new books, especially books related to subjects taught at the various departments of the PU, and established a textbook section, the assistant librarian said."
