AMU NEWS

Electronic  Periodicals Section
Electronic Periodicals Section, a state of the art facility to access journals electronically, has been established at Zakir Hussain College of Engineering & Technology (ZHCET), AMU, Aligarh. Prof. Farid Ghani, Dean Faculty of Engineering & Technology who lead this project, said that ZHCET is one of the few technical institutions of the country to possess such a facility. He further informed that this facility would be boosting research activities in the engineering college.
   The section is equipped with Internet connection from VSNL, New Delhi through 64 Kbps leased line and eleven computers, which have been borrowed from each department of the engineering college. The Internet service is available on each computer through an Ethernet-based LAN. Users can use the Electronic Periodical Section to download research articles from publishers’ websites. A major advantage of this facility is that it eliminates postal delay. This facility will also be resulting in financial saving, as there are several journals whose electronic copy is available free of cost.
   The use of the facility is not limited to journal subscription but it can also be used for e-mail, browsing etc. Among others who are involved in establishing this facility are Mr. M. R. Warsi and Mr. Alsaad Ishaq of Department of Computer Engineering. In the second phase, the facility will be extended to each department so that users can access the journals from there.

Conference on Neuroscience
The biggest killers on prowl in the country are trauma and diseases related to nervous system and about 75 per cent casualties in India occur to these diseases. This was disclosed by Professor A.K. Banerjee, former head of the department of Neurosurgery, AIIMS, New Delhi in address to the Xth Annual Conference of U.P. Neuroscience Society held at J.N.Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University on 4 March.
   He reminded the organizers that AMU had an old commitment for having a separate department of Neurosurgery. He said that the dream of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan to have fulfilled beyond his expectations and this University is considered the most prestigious institution in the country.
   AMU Vice Chancellor released a souvenir edited by Dr Afzal Anees. On this occasion, Prof. VK Jain, president of the Neuroscience society of U.P., Prof. Rakesh Shukla, Prof. Mohammad Ahmad, Dean, Faculty of Medicine and Professor S.A. Sadiq, Principal, J.N.Medical College also addressed the inaugural session.

Disaster awareness
Dr VK Sharma, chairman, National Centre for Disaster Management urged the educators to introduce the ‘disaster education’ course in Indian Universities and disaster management plan should be prepared in all areas.
   He was inaugurating a two-day national workshop on ‘Disaster awareness and Management’ in the Z.H. College of Engineering and Technology, Aligarh Muslim University. He appreciated the role of NCC and NSS volunteers during the Orissa cyclone and Gujarat earthquake.
   Dr. Sharma said the role of structural engineering would have to be awarded eminence in all building activity in earthquake-borne areas and appreciated the role of Aligarh Muslim University to organize this unique workshop and urged the University to set-up a cell of disaster management.
   Prof. Farid Ghani, Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology said that Disasters are not longer ‘localized events’ – their impact is felt by people living for from the disaster site itself. We spent about five billion us dollars per week on them worldwide. They take a tremendous human toll and thousands of lives are lost every year throughout the world.
   Prof. Farid Ghani mentioned that on average; about 128,000 people loose their lives in global tragedies each year. Last year disaster took 139,000 lives. The Venezuela floods, earthquake in Turkey, and cyclone in India accounted for about 85,000 of these deaths.

Environmental Degradation
An inter-disciplinary exercise is the need of the hour to tackle with the problems of environmental degradation and poverty in ‘our land having diversity of plants’. It was stated by Mr M. Hamid Ansari, Vice-Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University on 3 March while delivering the presidential address at the regional conference on ‘Environment, Agriculture & Poverty in the Department of Geography.
   In his opening remarks, Prof. Ali Mohammad, chairman of Department of Geography reminded the participants that agriculture was still a main source of survival in this country and other surrounding countries but highly affected by environmental phenomena because of poor infrastructure and poor socio-economic base.
