Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Gazipur
Each and every MS and PhD student of Agricultural Universities are to review past studies for their research work. University teachers also review past studies for conducting their individual research. Reviewing past studies is very difficult, time consuming and costly task. I am very happy to know that Prof. Dr. Md. Sekender Ali and Prof. M. Zahidul Haqueof Sher-e-Bngla Agricultural University, Dhaka; Prof. Dr. Md. Golam Farouqueof Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh; and Dr. Md. Abiar Rahman, of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University (BSMRAU), Gazipur has established a Digital Archive on Agricultural Theses and Journals of Bangladesh with the financial support from Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP) of University Grants Commission of Bangladesh (UGCB). It is definitely a milestone for making digital Bangladesh in higher education and research. Theses and Journals of BAU, SAU and BSMRAU are included in this digital archive. Theses and journals of other universities may be included in this digital archive.
There is necessity to link of this digital archive with the websites of BdREN and respective universities for enhancing higher education and research in digital way. By visiting for a few minutes in the web portal of this digital archive, researchers, academicians and students will be able to get results of all past Theses and Journals of agricultural universities.
Today (21 November, 2012), I am very happy by attending in the launching program of this digital archive as Special Guest at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka. I would like to thank Prof. Dr. Sekender Ali, his Management Team Members, consultants and staffs for this appreciable task.
