NCSC ACM team launches NUST Book Bank

The NCSC ACM (Association of Computing Machinery) team launched NUST Book Bank. It is the first of its kind, aiming solely to benefit the students all over the NUST campus. The team’s mission is to help fellow Nustian students in their academic struggle.

NCSC ACM team core concept of this project is to facilitate the students who find it difficult to purchase so many books each semester for each course. Not knowing which book to go for, they end up relying only on the course material provided by the instructors (slides, lectures etc.), which consequently effects their grades. In addition to this, the course books are expensive as well.

For this purpose, NCSC ACM team provides a platform where the senior students or graduating students can help the juniors simply by donating course, reference books and other fictional books as well. The project follows "Donate One Get One" policy, which will enable students to donate old books and get new ones in return, and thereby benefitting their academic prospects through increased knowledge-related resources.

The first phase of the project was to collect books. Desks were set up in all schools of H-12 campus and door to door campaign for book collection in NUST hostels was carried out. In only two weeks, Book Donation Drive was able to collect more than 1400 books.

In the second phase, book shelves have been set up in SMME old building (Al-Jazzari block) which was formally inaugurated on 23rd January 2015. Dr. Arshad, Principal SEECS and Mr. Ehsan-ul-Haq, DD Student Affairs were invited to officially inaugurate the book bank. Dr Arshad Ali gave his valuable input that the books should be catalogued and an additional counter for the Book Bank should be incorporated within the C1 fictional library in a bid to increase its exposure to the students.
