Advantages of E-Library

On October 24, 2014, the Scientific Library of Astrakhan State University hosted the teaching seminar Development Experience & Practical Skills of Work within KnigaFond Electronic Library System. Authors of this system specialists of the Moscow Center of Digital Distribution have taken part in this event, as well as librarians of ASU and staff of Astrakhans public libraries.

KnigaFond is one of Russia’s first and largest electronic libraries; it fully complies with all the requirements of Federal Educational Standards for Higher Professional Education. It is a complete educational tool to provide efficient work with academic and scientific editions.

The electronic library makes it possible to read, summarize, and cite electronic versions of editions. Any user can form their own “bookshelves” and leave bookmarks on pages and materials that are of special interest for them.
