Selective Dissemination of Information
This service keep users informed of new resources on specified topics.
Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) service is a type of “alerting service” meant for individual users, mainly specialists, which is exclusively restricted to the area of interest of the user concerned.
We provide SDI services in the following ways
- Display of newly acquired materials on the display racks of the library to be seen by users.
- Display of table of contents of newly acquired books and pasted on the notice board at strategic places.
- Newspaper clipping arranged on an album or in a file in an office cabinet. Creating this awareness helps researchers and library users to have access to current information and development in their area of interest.
- Purposes of SDI is to help users to cope with information overload, and save their time as long as they don't have much time for reading, probably because of the nature of their work and little time for research hence, may prefer ready-made information.
