Do you know that you can read any book on a smartphone without visiting a bookstore?
‘E-books’ are now available in the CWNU library.
E-books (E for electronic) are new publications that we can see via an electronic gadget. E-books are a way to process writers’ works in digital form via a messenger and are sent to electronic storage media or through wired and wireless devices.
The CWNU library started this system in 2008 for students to have access to various books and information and use them more conveniently and faster. Moreover, it is to contribute to getting more people to read.
At present, the CWNU library helps students’ convenience by being linked to Mekia, EPIRUS and KYOBO which are some of the big bookstores. As of September 2017, the CWNU library has 4,897 e-books and about 230 are borrowed every month.
E-books are easy to carry and production is cheaper than paper books. Furthermore, it is easily manageable since they can’t be damaged and there are no constraints with time and space, so many students love this system.
The method of using CWNU’s e-book system is very simple. First, search among MEKIA E-book, EPIRUS E-book library and KYOBO Electronic library on your smartphone. Next, access the app and set the school as ‘CWNU’ and type in the ID and password. KYOBO’s ID is your school ID, but for the others, it’s the library ID and PW.
You can borrow 3 books at a time for 5 days. Also, you can only extend check-out one time, after that the book is returned automatically.
Jo Min Ji who works at serial information on the 2nd floor in the library said, “I was so ashamed because this good system isn’t promoted well enough,” and hopes that the e-book system will be used by more students.
