There is an antique work on the shelves of the State Central Library to which access is restricted.

Its date of publication reads 1569. It is called the ‘Righte Noble and Pleasant History of the Successors of Alexander Surnamed the Great,’ and now anyone with an Internet connection can explore the contents of the book, all 338 pages of it, by visiting the ‘archives’ section of the library’s website.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Tuesday inaugurated this landmark achievement of the library - inclusion of the digital archive of rare books and government gazettes to its official website.
