It is a fact that no institution or department can work efficiently and optimally until and unless its superiors and managers directly take an active and avid interest in its proper administration. Obviously, the Allama I. I. Kazi Central Library is no exception to this rule. We are indeed fortunate to have in the person of the present Vice Chancellor of the University of Sindh, Prof. Dr. Abida Taherani, just such an administrator. She is an educationist and academician to the core and has taken upon her shoulders the daunting task of improving the lot of the Central and Seminar Libraries of the University of Sindh and bringing them up to par with the requirements and standards of the modern day library in this age of information technology.
