Pilani Rajasthan Shridhar University Observes World Book and Copyright Day 2011

Pilani Rajasthan Shridhar University Observes World Book and Copyright Day 2011

Books are all about sharing experience, knowledge and understanding and without doubt are the most powerful forms of dialogue between individuals, within communities, between generations and with other societies. Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to human race, which are delivered down from generation to generation as presents to the posterity of those who are yet born.

April 23 is just no ordinary date as it’s a symbolic date for world literature, for this day happens to be the birth or death date of many renowned authors who include Cervantes, Shakespeare, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, Maurice Druon, K.Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejia Vallejo.

The idea for this celebration originated in Catalonia where on 23 April, Saint George's Day, a rose was traditionally given as a gift for each book sold. By celebrating April 23 across the globe as World Book and Copyright Day, UNESCO seeks to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property through copyright.

The global book market is deeply affected by the rise of e-books and downloadable content which is transforming the publishing industry, impacting on publishers apart from touching the conscience of authors and readers. Such a transformation is giving rise to new debates about strengths and weaknesses of different kinds of books, about the nature of copyright today, about the role of libraries in the context of on-line knowledge and most importantly in a world of blogs and wikis and social networking of the twitter and facebook kind about the very meaning of ‘authorship’. It is in this context, for the 2011edition of the Day; UNESCO has suggested that focus be given to the evolution of book production, from writing to digital, their complementarity and future challenges.

Addressing the students of Shridhar University, Prof Natarajan Pro Vice Chancellor pointed out that the task of a University is the creation of future and no university in the world has ever risen to greatness without a correspondingly great library. Explaining the significance of the day, he urged the students to utilize the university library in the most responsible manner and reiterated the Martin Farquhar Tupper quote "A good book is the best of friends the same today and forever."
