What is an E-library?
This is a collection of online information, carefully organized according to tittles and subjects, consisting of images, text, audios, and videos. An electronic library enables ease of research for assignments, thesis or project as it contains information that is relevant for this purpose.

Everything on the e-library system is based on soft copy and some of these contents can be saved as PDF files on our devices in order to enable offline viewership. E-libraries are very neat and stress- less systems as it helps one to decongest their living space, since it does not require the use of hardcopy
