Modern Library and ICT Infrastructure Established at Parami University

Modern library and ICT infrastructure are established so that our students, teachers, and researchers can access world-class resources in a wide range of subject areas. Two main programs make this possible. 

Parami University is a member of the Myanmar Academic Libraries Consortium (MALC, https://myanmaralc.org/), which was established by the Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL) e-Library Myanmar Project (https://www.eifl.net/eifl-in-action/elibrary-myanmar-project). As a member of MALC, Parami has licensed modern ICT tools and software to supplement teaching and learning. We have acquired the license to use EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) as the premier academic search engine that supports integrated searching of content from full-text databases, citation databases, and local content collections. In addition, Parami University now has access to various journal collections and databases acquired through the membership of MALC, which are all searchable within the EDS. The list of the electronic resources is available here https://parami.edu.mm/library/electronic-resources

Another program is Research4Life. Partnering with WHO, FAO, UNEP, WIPO, ILO, Cornell and Yale Universities and more than 160 international publishers partners, Research4life consists of five different programs—Research in Health (Hinari), Research in Agriculture (AGORA), Research in the Environment (OARE), Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) and Research for Global Justice (GOALI). These five programs contain collections of prestigious journals, Research4Life provides affordable online access to academic, professional, and research information to colleges and universities in developing countries. As a participating member of Research4Life, the members of Parami University now have access to research articles and scholarly works from various prestigious journals, including Nature, Science, the New England Journal of Medicine through the R4L portal (https://parami.edu.mm/library/research4life).  

Accessing these resources off-campus requires connecting to the Parami IP address. This remote access is powered by the FortiClient VPN system.
